and by saying that, i will never finish THE sweater ! but, i might. of course, i might never wear THE sweater. and i'm not working on my other sweater .... but if i do, you'll see it here first !
in other knitterly news, i knitted socks!
socks ... not sock. they are wonderful and warm and pretty and finished! i started these new years eve and finished last night. i could had finished sooner, but i was distracted by THE sweater and the shawl.
the shawl is quite satisfying to knit. just when i was bored with the all over pattern, i got to move on to the next chart. i went back to ravelry for a bit more inspiration, and found again the version that i adored.
she had made a modification that made the all over pattern flow better into the next chart of lace. i followed her links and made the "changes".
it's looking great. i've completed the first round of chart B. i have to knit that section (minus the mods.) two more times before moving on to the next chart ... but, i'm almost out of yarn. i left the second hank of linen at work ... so, unless i want to do a ninja strike on my lys tomorrow morning, i will continue knitting on THE sweater, or socks.
