Ugh. I’m a horrible person that missed an FO Friday last week. This is not due to lack of FOs. This is due to Steam having an awesome sale over the holidays and me spending any free time not knitting playing video games.
The hideous gigantic hat from last week has been felted and blocked, but I still want to accessorize it so you won’t see it this Friday.
I cast on the Juneberry Triangle shawl on January 1 along with a few other members of my knitting group. I’m doing mine in Valley Yarns Lenox, which is soft and smooshy and awesome and I LOVE IT OMG.
I wouldn’t say the pattern is hard, but it’s challenging and it needs a lot of attention paid to it. There is lacework on both sides of the knitting. In the first couple charts you get a “rest” row (all purls) only every 4th row, and by chart D there aren’t any rest rows left. There are stitches like Slip-slip-purl, bobbles, and knit/purl three together. This is not a “knit while in a group” project at all.
Here’s a progress shot of my crocheted skirt!
It was taken at a weird angle, so I assure you that this skirt is only just below the knees. Also, it’s hard to see in my hermit-cave apartment, but I’ve switched over to the purple yarn. Lastly, I’m hoping that with tights and a slip, you won’t see my stupid chunky lumps like you do in this picture. Bleh.
