A bit of progress to report. I've been a busy bee!
First up, progress on the Premiere Pullover:
Not a lot, as you can see. I'm almost finished the armhole shaping, about 2 more repeats of the cable pattern before the shoulder shaping. It's a slow knit, this one! I'm a bit worried about it actually, it looks a bit small to me. I'm knitting it in the 34" bust size (which I am far from lol) so maybe it's just because I'm not used to garments looking that small! I hope I haven't knit it too tightly.
Next up, Socks for Dad:
The first one is finished! Doesn't it look good? I love this Lana Grossa self striping yarn. My first knit on dpns. I must admit that I've started the second one on my trusty circular again using the magic loop. I'm just more comfortable with it. I found the toe decreases very difficult on the dpns. Needles everywhere!
But, I'm glad I know how to do it now, as I'll be casting on for my Monkey socks with the Araucania yarn I recently bought for my airplane knitting.
Lastly, Mam's Lacy Stole:
I'm sorry to report that I didn't get it finished in time for her birthday last Wednesday. I substituted with a bunch of flowers instead, I just didn't have the time. I knit on this almost constantly at home but to no avail. I have about 25 or 26" done which I suppose is not bad going! I have to get to 72". I think I'll give it to her for Christmas instead. I know she'll love it!
I hope to get another post in before my holidays (yarn travels) begin on Thursday, but if not, watch out LYS in the Orlando area, I'm coming!!!
