WIP Wednesday 18th May 2011


Late again!!!  Was hoping to post early but the sick bug is in the house so I have been deep in disinfectant all evening.  Poorly girl now in bed.

I've been sewing more than playing with yarn the last few days but I have got another Elise shawl on the go.  Absolutely love the speed of this project and I have the pattern memorized now so can watch TV and crochet.  Its another ball of Artists Palette sock yarn.  I'm left with 37 grams or 161 yards on the skein - any ideas for a project??



Also started the Summer Mystery Shawlette by Wendy Johnson.  This is my first Ravelry knit along and I am loving it - nearly completed the second clue.  Thankfully only had to frog a few stitches on the first row and everything has been fine since.  Its such a good feeling to get to the end of the 200+ stitch row and realise that you havent messed up!  I will be using lifelines on this one.

  1. What a pretty, summery shawl. The colors are wonderful. I love those types of patterns that are easily memorized and relaxing to work on. Can't wait to see how the mystery shawlette progresses.

  4. The mystery shawlette sounds good - and the colours will be so gorgeous! I know what you mean about getting to the end of a long row to find no mistakes - unfortunately doesn't happen often enough to me!

  6. Still adoring that crocheted shawl so much, and yay for mystery knitalongs! I love the idea of those so much, and the colours you're working yours in are delicious, I can't wait to see it grow.

  7. I haven't done a KAL but so want to! I LOVE the colors of both the shawls, but especially the bottom one. That teal/blue is electrifying. I wonder if you have enough left over yarn of the first for a small shawlette. If not, you can always make a hat with the remaining!
