Cool Knitting Blog & Catching Up

Completed the Sabrina A-Line Sweater by Vera Sanon in a KAL in the ravelry group, The Curvalicious Sisterhood

I came across this website, Rhythm of the Needles, and thought I would share it with you. Apparently the site’s URL changed and the owner is trying to get the word out. Go visit her!

I finally finished my Sabrina A-line sweater. It’s a Vera Sanon design and was a KAL through the Ravelry group, The Curvalicious Sisterhood. I like how it turned out.

I’m still knitting my second wingspan. It’s become my knit-away-from-home project, so it doesn’t get a lot of work.

I also am knitting Wendy Johnson’s summer shawl for her knitalong. I was all caught up…then fell behind! I’ll catch up this weekend. It’s gorgeous and I’m using a really pretty blue yarn.

I designed a cowl and took it to String Theory Yarn Company in Glen Ellyn (IL) for the Pediboo contest. It turned out really cool and I’ll be writing up the pattern for it. I didn’t get to take pictures, so it won’t get done until I get the cowl back in mid-September.

Wingspan Shawl Complete

Have you seen the free Wingspan shawl on Ravelry? You’ve got to check it out.

I had some sock yarn that didn’t feel like something I would want socks made out of. It was stiff, a little rough. But the colors are great. So I whipped it up into the Wingspan! This was the fastest thing I ever knit! It took me 5 days!

The pattern is intuitive, so once you get the rhythm down, you can roll right along. I liked it so much I cast on another ball of yarn to make another. This time I making some adjustments, adding stitches to the cast on so it’s bigger overall. I also have two balls so I can make it as big as I like. I’m not knitting as fast as before because I have some other projects on the needles.
