Wip's of the Week

The lucky knits that get some play time this week are....

Landscape Shawl for our yearly Knitting Guild KAL. I have until December to finish it...but I don't know if I can wait that long.
The start, part 3
Lorna's Laces Shepard Worsted in Amy's Vintage Office! I luff the colorway and the yarn. Hard to put down! You're seeing v.3 as I've finally found the needle size I want to use.

Almost there, my first SOS 09 and SAM 8 pair.
Almost there!
sew off one cuff, knit about 4" and add a cuff, then 2 afterthought heels! Sock 2 was knit while driving home from extended vacation, um....a teensy bit tighter than Sock 1, wonder why ;) Good thing I had my Emergency Knitting Bag with me huh! I needed it!


Shawl That Jazz
but don't get used to this picture...well yet anyways!
well..it did look like that earlier today

It looks like this now! I just couldn't wait to show you how it was knitting up.
Now it looks like this....
There is a reason for slipped stitches in this pattern. Sadly I missed a lot of them, like I think I remember doing them on rows 3 and 4 other than that nope! Rather than try to fiddle with it later (due to unslippedstitches) a pal helped me unwind down to row 3. I don't mind! It's garter! Now to keep a reminder note around ;)

You've got a lot of knitting to do! I'm going to frog what I have on my Shawl That Jazz and cast back on with some Twisted I have coming in the mail. I fudged a lot of the stitches on mine, too, so I'm not too sorry to see the little bit I had done go.

The shawl is looking great! Love the color!

I'm not sure if I should tell you this now or not, but if you miss a few slips next time it's really not a big deal. Just pick up the stich below and pretend they are the same stitch. The garter and the way the gaps close will do a good job of hiding the difference.

I can't wait to see it finished.

That Amy's office colourway is gorgeous innit? I have a skein of the Amy friendly yarn in that colourway and I haven't done anything with it cause I'm too busy petting it!

Love the Jazz in making (with or without mistakes)!

Ooo, ooo, ooo, I just made that shawl (with some major modifications)! Very easy but not too boring. I kinda want to make another since the first one was a gift.
