kitty: sneak peak

Time for a sneak peak!

I blocked out one corner of the shawl that I am currently working on to post a sneak peak about it. Since I was really bad last time posting about the green shawl. Last time though the green shawl just kind of fell off the needles and it was done. This one is taking longer since the pattern is a lot more difficult and the sock challenge of course.

The red shawl has a definitive deadline that it has to be finished by so lets hope the last 1/4th goes as fast as the first part. I am already thinking about the next Orenburgh shawl I want to knit. I may or may not be totally obsessed with these shawls. There is just something magical about them. They are so airy, they feel like nothing while you knit them, and the patterns are so fragile.

Sorry about the poor quality in the photos. The blue red really didn't want to be photographed. Also I really need to come up with a better way to block the points.

PS. Francesca, I promise to post the tutorial about knitting the body and the border at the same time soon. I just need to convince my husband to take pictures. I have worked up a couple of sketches as well.

  1. I love this red shawl. I can't believe you are knitting a sock a week and managing to make progress on complex lace at the same time.

    Thank you for thinking of posting that tutorial! I won't be able to use the technique for the shawl I already have on the way, but I *definitely* want to learn how to do that for next time.
