Where the heck do the weekends go and are the ones in December even shorter? I think they must be…
We were under a winter storm watch this weekend, which is much less ominous than it sounds. This is Canada, we get winter. Real winter. Not namby pamby, oh brrrr, I need to wear gloves winter. 🙂
This meant knitting and more knitting and yet, I still don’t have an FO to show. I’ve been totally absorbed in my TTT (Morlynn) Shawl, to the point where, when I ran out of my main colour on Thursday morning, I made the trek to my LYS at the other end of town after work to pick up a second skein. Only this morning did I see a “Sticky” in the discussion pages for the pattern on Ravelry where, another Raveler had discovered that the quantities given are off. No biggie, I was back at it by the time I sat down on the bus to come home and am currently in the middle of the lace border.
Here’s how it’s been working up:
I totally ignored poor Dahlia and my socks, it seems that this shawl pattern is addictive! I am really liking my Karbonz circulars too. The tip to shaft join is virtually unnoticeable. The shaft to cord join could be a little more smooth, but it’s not distracting enough to take away from the knitting. Shout out to Knitter’s Pride: You’d have knitting pin perfection if you’d smooth out that join (and add a CPY-style bearing to the cord join).
