Happy Holiday Knitting!

I snuck in some much needed R&R this past holiday weekend. Not as much as I would have liked, but hey I will take any I can get. After looking back it does seem like I got in a lot of knitting.

First of all is my new winter shawl. I had been really inspired by Stefanie Japel's City Shawl, but something really wasn't me with her pattern. I didn't think I was really the triangular shawl type and I thought in the long run it was a little plain. With all the amazing lace shawl patterns out there I wanted something with a little more interest, but it also had to be fast and simple. I really liked the thought of finishing something I could wear by Monday.

So my shawl is a combination of the simple aspects of the City Shawl, with the stitch interest of Maggie Jackson, and a little bit of me thrown in.

I also finally got around to working on the brown phildar sleeve and starting the next sleeve. I just want to be done with the sweater. I just hope it works out in the end.
