WIP Wednesday 25th May 2011


Wednesdays come around so quick!!  We've not been a healthy household this week (kids and their sick bugs!) so my progress has been hampered a bit.  My main project is still the Summer Mystery KAL.  After finishing the first chart using the Zauberball I was disappointed by the amount of fluffiness - with lace you want to be able to see all the hard concentration that goes into the pattern.  The new chart was due until Sunday and I'd finished on Fri so decided to cast on another one using Fyberspates Scrumptious 4ply cherry.  Its got a gorgeous sheen to it and is showing up the stitch definition really well.  Only 2 more rows left to complete the 2nd released chart in the cherry and then I will go back to the Zauberball to try and complete the 2nd chart before the 3rd is released tomorrow evening!  Really enjoying the mystery and knitting to a deadline - I know without it these would be eternal WIP's!!!  Knitting bottom up is the way to go too - so better to work down from 241 stitches than take forever to get there!

Dont forget to pop over the Tami's Amis for this weeks other WIP's

1st chart completed in the Zauberball.  Looks like chart 2 will be in the teal colour.

My first project with a life line!!!  Dont want to frog this one!

 
Much better stitch definition than the Zauberball.

  1. That fyberspates yarn is a beautiful colour, and you're right about the excellent stitch definition *adds fyberspates to my wish list ;)*

  2. Looks like both of us are working on Wendy's mystery shawlette for WIP Wednesdays. Your lace cast on turned out nicer than mine. Mine sunk down on itself pretty quickly. I'm blaming the yarn, which is Knit Picks Palette. It's all rough on my hands, too.

  3. I think I have the same zauberball on the go, mine is going for socks though.

  4. Wow, it's beautiful, actually both are! I love the color of the bottom one and you're right, the stitch definition is much better!

  5. I bet the stitch definition of the first will be better after blocking. Both are beautiful! I love that cherry color.

  6. Lovely start on both shawls. I'm in the same KAL and enjoying the bottom up design too.

  7. I love seeing the same chart in two yarns like this, it's fascinating!
