There are way too many things on the needles – although that doesn’t seem to stop me from adding more things on needles.
I love the On The Spice Market shawl and there’s a KAL and after looking at all the lovely color combinations people are using in their shawls, I couldn’t resist.
This is the yarn I will be using – a Miss Babs yummy 2-ply toes gradient set – this color grouping is called Gemstones. The yarn at the top is my background – same type of Miss Babs yarn but this color is Fleur de sel. I am showing some self-control tho – I’m not winding yarn and casting on this very minute. Maybe tomorrow night….
Tonight I’m hoping to get the back of my CF Cardipalooza sweater done. I was knitting along merrily and realized oh no – I forgot I was adding a lace pattern to the upper back of this sweater. But I think it will still work out and actually be easier since all the armhole shaping is already done so I was spared the math of figuring out how many stitches were going to be decreased and getting the center of the lace pattern centered in the sweater.
I’ve just started on a couple of the rows of the lace on the top in the photo. There won’t be as wide a swath of it as originally planned but that’s okay. It’s an easy lace pattern so should go pretty quickly.
I also finally got back on track with the lace wrap after many false starts. Here’s how far I got – it has gotten set aside for a bit because I really want to concentrate on my sweater (and that shawl I’ll undoubtedly start tomorrow) 🙂
