It’s about time I updated this blog. The last wee was a busy one with an audit wrapping up at work and my BIG engineering exam on the 30th! I feel so relieved that both of those are in the past now.
The sweater is still 1/3 of a sweater give or take a few inches. I’m about 5 inches into the front piece. I haven’t touched it much this week. I keep getting distracted with new projects.
Before going into the new projects I need to recap on the old.
I quickly knit up a cowl out of Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande Tweed 2 weeks ago.
I have to say I love this yarn and this pattern, but I’m not too big of a fan of how big around it was. It seemed smaller on the needles. It’s getting unknitted sometime soonish and reknit a couple inches smaller in diameter. (Don’t worry, this model was fairly paid in tasty Milk Bones.)
I also finished up the 198 yards of heaven shawl I was knitting for a friend on Ravelry. It’s been blocked out and is waiting for me to weave in the ends.
It’s lovely. I need to measure it to see exactly how big it turned out. This pattern was a quick knit once you got into it.
It’s getting late (for me) so I think I will update you tomorrow or Thursday on the new projects. I can assure you they are quite lovely!
