Stitching Status: Riding the Wave

This has been such an off week but I’m plugging along and can’t believe it’s only Wednesday.

I am on the last 14 rows of my the Rain Outside shawl before I can do the fancy bind-off. This will be the first time I do a knitted cast-on as part of the decorative bind-off. I’ve done a few new things for this project and I really like it a lot. I’m already plotting what my next one will look like because I’m going to make it for myself. Hint…it will be green!

And can we talk about how much yarn choices influence my manicures? I don’t think about it when I go to the nail salon but when I get home and pick my projects back up all I can think is ‘well damn that’s pretty spot on.’ I made the mistake of doing some of the lace short rows in the car last night while chatting with my husband…I ended up frogging back about 4 long rows to start over because I’m so close to finishing and I don’t want to mess up in the last lace panel. This has been such an enjoyable knit.
You know it's going to be a good day when  your boss surprises you with a copy of @claraparkes #Knitlandia just because 😀 #nevernotknitting #fringefieldbag
I did have a lovely surprise when I got to work yesterday, my boss gave me a copy of Knitlandia! I actually stumbled upon this book over the weekend, never mentioned it to her but she saw it and bought it for me. It was a great way to start off my day and a reminder that I’ve been pretty fortunate to have some awesome supervisors in my life (all of whom are pretty awesome women that I’ve learned a lot from). I’m hoping that by Thursday evening I’m blocking this shawl and photographing it over the weekend. I think my next project will be either a stuffed animal (I’m dying to knit this chihuahua) or the socks for my godson’s birthday because it’s only 2 weeks away! What’s on your needles right now?

  1. Looks like it’s going to be a beautiful shaw, and I LOVE your nail polish. 🙂 Also noticed you have a Fringe Supply Co bag. I just got one last week. Can’t wait to start using it!

    1. Yeah I picked one up a while ago from my LYS before she introduced colors. I like it for the most part except for when I’m working on sweaters. I typically carry those around in a Baggu bag since they’re a bit bigger.

  2. Oh wow! I have been stalking this new designer for a while now. I would knit this in a heartbeat, but I have a list of techniques I want to get thru this year, so… Looking forward to seeing your FO, and hearing how you liked her patternwriting. She’s definitely on my list of designers to watch.
