Pretty Darn Productive


I hope everyone else had as productive a weekend as I did (or, if not very productive, then very restful). I have a new hat pattern ready to go out sometime this week, and just a couple of tiny things for the revamped vest pattern before it's ready for its re-release. I also got a quick swatch worked up for a summer pullover that I'm planning, and I'm very pleased with it,


As might be predicted from my monogamous knitting last week, the yellow shawl is currently blocking on the futon, and the pattern is right on schedule for an April release. I'm really pleased with how it came out, and I can't wait to do the photoshoot (so many pretty dresses will go with this-how to choose??).


The replacement needles for the green shawl haven't arrived, so I'm taking a break from work stuff to get some more of Anemone's Shrowl knit. I'm a third of the way through the final ball of yarn, so with any luck this should be done pretty soon. My WIP basket has gotten a little out of hand lately, and I want to reign it back in a little.

  4. Wish my weekend was as productive! I ripped out a sleeve of a sweater and then slowly started all over again. But your finished projects are giving me a little motivation! Looks lovely :)

    1. As much as we hate it, ripping out is technically progress. Glad to help motivate you forward :)

    1. Thanks! I learned pretty much as soon as I started knitting that I could never be a truly monogamous knitter.
