moving right along ...

... my shawl is very close to being finished! i only have a few more rows to knit before the bind off. i am eager to get this off the needles and see it blocked. and then, i'm even more eager to scrunch it up and break up the stiffness.



being nearly done is today's theme. i have a freshly started, and nearly finished new monkey orphan socken. this sock is knitted with some stashed koigu, colorway p511. as the ball gets smaller, i start to wonder if the toe will be the same colorway as the rest of the sock. i've made koigu monkeys before, and made it all the way to the toe. but, i always have my doubts.

and the sweater ! all the pieces have been knitted. i only have to iron the curly edges a bit before i sew the pieces together. i bound off all the top edges, as the pattern calls for, but, i'm going to take the bind off out and do a simple finish on the neckline instead.

nothing like a little bit of snow and a lord of the rings marathon to get a knitter moving on some stuff! :)
