Woohoo! I’m linking up with the Yarn Along two weeks in a row! Such a silly, simple, yet daunting accomplishment. I might just get the hang of this blogging thing yet. 😉 On to my progress report.
I’ve made no progress here this week as I’ve been mostly focused on knitting. I’ve made great progress in that area. Still, here’s a gratuitous picture of my afghan in progress.
One day, it will completely cover the bed. I may be 80 at this rate, though. 🙂
Truth be told, I haven’t done much reading this week, either. Gah! I love both books. It’s that old “read or knit” conundrum, and knitting has been winning out.
So here is where the bulk of my free time has been going.
If you’ll remember, last week I only had the collar of this little sweater completed. Today, I’m nearly to the hem! I’m trying desperately to beat little one’s arrival, or finish it as soon after little one is born as possible. Ive been searching for a bit of lace to add to the hem, but can’t come up with a pattern I like or that fits the stitch count. Next time I knit one of these, I’ll pick a lace pattern earlier so I can accommodate it when working the underarm section where it won’t be obvious. In the mean time, I think I’ll finish this off with the garter hem in the pattern.
It may not be obvious in the photo, but I’ve made significant progress on my Baktus. The progress seems to go slower as the rows get wider. I suppose that’s true for any shawl…er…scarf… Scawl? Sharf? Whatever you want to call it. I’m loving the colors in this yarn, although I’m really hoping my friend doesn’t find it too rough around her neck.
That about does it for me this week. What are you crafting or reading? Let me know in the comments, or, better yet, come join us over at the Yarn Along!
Have a great Wednesday!
