wip wednesday

I finished Mr. B’s sweater with the help of five donated yards of yarn. and it is blocking so, of course, the mid-70s are supposed to drop tonight.  We need the rain more than I need a dry sweater, so . . .

I have started a small shawl for myself.  I have had bad luck with lace and I want to shake the monkey off my back, so I picked something relatively simple.

It does get lacier and more interesting later, or so the pictures indicate.  (Gingko Shoulderette Shawl)

We shall see how that goes when I get there.

The Tweedy Vest is proceeding apace, although I have not gotten as much knitting time in as I had hoped.  The body is finished and I am almost finished with one armband.

Once it is finished, only the sock I started last July will be around to remind me what an abysmal knitting year 2013 was.  I have several doctors’ appointments in the next few weeks, so even that may get finished.

I have to say that starting the shawl has been really nice as it carries no guilt!

  1. Ah, so that’s why it’s raining. You’re blocking. Mr B came out beautifully, as far as I can tell.

    All knitting should be guilt free! Why wouldn’t it be? That shawl is really pretty, I’m looking for something similar but with a rounded rather than pointed back. Not that I have time to knit it. Which is probably why I’m looking for it though.
