What's on my needles?

Entries in shawls (7)


WIPs for Wednesday

Quick mid-week share, here's what's on my needles...

The Cerasifera shawl, started late last week.  I was indecisive over what color to use, so I choose to use both, striped.  I'm currently doing about 2 pattern repeats per color, so far I'm liking the way it's transitionning between the colors, definitely allowing the pattern to shine.  I just finished the 14 pattern repeats, total stitches right now at 198 stitches.

I'm excited to get this one done, it may win me a prize!  This is for the Summer Shawl KAL hosted by Through The Loops designer Kirsten Kapur.  Such great shawls to choose from, I'd love to make them all, but I settled on this beauty.  I'm gearing to have this blocking this weekend.

In a bit of a smaller project, well the knitted item is small, the design isn't.  I'm making a hat for my brother, this is going to be a pretty large hat, allowing alot of room to show long thick hair into and hide.  Guess it's like a Rasta hat? Not sure.

It's the perfect project to get me into the mood for the holidays, and I'm loving it.  That time of year to start getting ready for all the fun.  I'm going to scratch the original pattern I drafted and go with another one.  This would be my 3rd attempt and getting the right pattern down for the type of hat and color changes.  It's going to be knit from the top down, ensures a good fit.

I have a few more knits on the needles, 2 for now, more to come later. 




Off and On

I don't think I'll knit a belt as the pattern calls for.  I still may add some afterthought pockets, and even maybe even some buttons, but for now it's done.  At least to a point. 

On the needles, Rock Island Shawl, using Kaaland Classic Two lace in Bushfire colorway.

That's 71 repeats of a 8 row chart, felt like it was never going to end! Oh and the yarn is luscious, even better it was a gift from Marisol as part of the Knitter's Treasure swap.  So glad I've finally got to use it. 

Another one soon to be on the needles, Cerasifera shawl, as part of the Through The Loops Summer Shawl Kal.  Anyone can join the kal, only required to knit a shawl from the Through The Loops patterns by Kirsten.  Turn in FO pics by 9/23/11 to show completion and then prizes are given for various efforts 8).   Join on Ravelry in the TTL group.


Got plans for this coming weekend, looking forward to it, 3 day weekend 8) Enjoy!
