With the blanket finishing up last week, this week has been about catching up on work that had fallen slightly behind. Two shawl designs needed to be cast off ready for some photography early this week. Fingers crossed the weather actually plays along as it’s blowing up a storm out there today!
This was the first design off the needles and should be released by the end of this week, very excited about that!
Late last night just in time for todays post this was next off the needles.
The other thing I love about items coming off the needles, is what you get to cast on. I’ve already spent time this morning making the final tweaks to a chart for a new design which I will cast on hopefully today but if not definitely this week. I also have a bit of swatching to do this afternoon for second new design.
This past week was mid-term. Caoimhe decided this week that she might give learning to knit another go. I had shown her how to do a knit stitch some years ago when she expressed interest but she put it aside until now. So this week we worked on cast on, here she is doing a knitted cast on. She chose this one over the long tail cast on and I guess it makes sense considering she’s already familiar with the knit stitch. She’s been happily working panels of garter stitch and stockinette.
That’s it for this week 🙂
