We're getting more settled into our house now. I've been knitting at night while Steve and I listen to old time
radio shows before we go to bed. I've finished the Chevron Tank
, and have been figuring out how I want my shrug to be designed. I've had it 1/4 of the way made many times before ripping
it out. I've been having a hard time deciding on a stitch pattern. I've also been working on the circular shawl
from Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac. That's been fun. I've turned to that when my shrug designing has
Here's the tank:
The circular shawl is on the left and the shrug is on the right. Both are works in progress. The yarn is
alpaca. It is so soft. I look forward to finishing either of these before it gets too cool.
Last for today, I found the very first knitting project that I tackled 7 years ago. It was packed away and I discovered
during this move. I used Red Heart acrylic yarn. It feels horrible. Especially after working with the alpaca.
I can't decide whether to save it just because it was my first finished knitted project, or give it away because I KNOW I
will never wear it.
It's just a big ol' seed stitch triangle. Nothing fancy, just a lot of stitches to practice my knitting.
Maybe I'll keep it for a costume box.
