What's On The Needles

Is it Wednesday already? Gee, times flies when you do nothing but sleep and work. And squeeze in some knitting.

Not too much progress since last week. I did finish Part 2 of the Mystic Light Shawl. It's turning into something very pretty.

Mystic Light KAL Part Two

Then there are the Noro socks still in progress.

Noro nearly done

Not too bad on the stripes, huh? I'm having a Wile E. Coyote moment (as in "super genius" - ongoing inside joke). Once I wash these, I hope the yarn will "blossom" as rumored. I love Noro colors, but I was disappointed with this combo. I have another skein in que, with blues and purples. I'm really going to have to spend some time swatching for stitch patterns. Can you tell I'm generally displeased with the product so far? I try to remain hopeful.

Reversai redux

I'm calling this Reversai Redux. I am re-knitting the first sock on smaller needles. I also re-knitted the toe on the second sock. I had them done for Round 2 of Sock Madness, tried them on again and figured I would not wear them unless they were fixed. I'm not looking forward to Round 3 - it's lace weight and I refuse to go buy anymore yarn. I will have to make do, which should be interesting.

I doubt that I will have anything but the Noro's done by Friday, unless I catch the dishcloth bug again. Stay tuned!

I made and a swatch and gave it a good scrubing. It feels much better. See for yourself at:
