Tonight is another meeting of the Clayton Knitt-Witts.
And as I gather my things together I realize that it's time for another sheep shawl update!
I have made it to the village; you can just see the rooftops peeking over the horizon.
I had a few rough spots in the orchard, mostly me forgetting to pay attention until I'm half a row away and have to tink back and fix my mistakes.
I'm about 44% finished with the shawl, and I just weighed my skein of Zephyr and I'm only one oz in. This means I should have plenty of yarn left over!
Looking at it right now it looks a bit loose and sloppy to me, but when I stretch it out the patterns look much better; so while I'm not completely happy with it right now I think it will even out and look much nicer once I'm finished and can block it.
And once again because I don't believe in monogamy, I've started something else:
It's a hat for my grandmother, she saw me knitting the gaiters and requested a winter hat for herself, and how can I refuse?
Also another project in the works!
The yarn I ordered from Knit Picks arrived yesterday, which means I can finally start the squirrel and oak mittens for Bill!
My lace weight for the veil also arrived, but it is in giant hanks, I'm hoping I can wrangle Bills mother to help me wind it into more manageable balls while we are at the knitting thing, the store has a ball winder I can use that should make the job a cinch.
