Believe it or not, I have found time for knitting. Aside from finishing up the socks that took a year to make, I have been working on the Retro Redux Shawl from Lace Style, by Pam Allen -using what else? Goddess Yarns Emanuella in an amethyst purple.
It's been an enjoyable knit. I like simply switching needles sizes to widen the sides instead of increasing. The main body of the shrug is almost finished. I just have to do the ribbed cuff. I imagine knitting the rest of the rib on the circs might be a bit tiresome. One of these days I'm going to have to learn how to knit in the continental style.
