Back On Track
I am still working on three projects - the cape, the girly shawl and this sock.
Most of my knitting time this past week was spent on the shawl. It is fun to knit and was always the project I pulled out first. The rows are getting longer and longer but that doesn't bother me at all. I could knit this all day long. In fact, I am thinking about using a second ball to make it even bigger.
I am at the point on the cape where I have to cast off sts for the arm openings. This means having to join new balls of yarn on the other side of the openings. So it looks to me like I will have 6 balls of yarn on the go at once since I am knitting with the yarn doubled. This seems like this could be a yarn tangling nighmare and have been avoiding it. But no longer. I am going to tackle this before heading to work this morning.
My sock. I am soooo much happier with this sock now that I have transferred it back onto dpns. That tiny round needle seems to have been the cause of the slow progress. The leg is finished and the heel flap started. I feel like I am finally making some sock progress!
