On The Needles

Library_-_5366Believe 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.

Blogging about knitting since 2004.


What's going on now?

To sum up: husband has a job after two layoffs in 2013. Husband has been laid off for the fourth time in two years due to companies cancelling projects. I have two kids under the age of 5, we just moved in with my mother in law and I think I'm starting to get my mojo back. I've had writer's block for weeks.
