After a couple of weeks with three or, at one point, four different works in progress ("WIPs") I am now back in my comfort zone of two current projects. I don't like having too many WIPs. If I'm not seeing good progress on my work I get antsy so two is usually my limit but I had deadlines. Needs must....
Firstly I'm working on a pair of socks using my favourite Wollmeise yarn. This pair uses Twin sock yarn (80% wool, 20% nylon) in colour way Hamam. The picture isn't quite right colour-wise. The yarn is a gorgeous emerald green but slight blue-green shading.
Project number two is a circular shawl. Part of an online KAL (knit-along) this is my second ever circular shawl and the first of my own design. It's based on Elizabeth Zimmerman's Pi shawl principles, which doesn't have anything to do with 3.14159....etc. Instead you simply double the number of stitches every time you double the number of rounds and, hey presto, your shawl lies flat! This one is made from Valley yarns Colrain lace, merino/tencel blend in colour way Merlot, a gorgeous bright red. The yarn has a very slight halo but not anywhere near enough to hide the lace pattern, and it comes on a 1540 yard cone so no need to join any ends. The whole thing is made from one continuous length of yarn.
What are you knitting this week?
