I have tried to keep my mind off of the contest this week. It is quite scarry, now that the contest is in the voting stage.
But I have been busy. First there were the baby blanket squares that I made for online friends of mine:
. The lighting is awful. But it was the clearest picture I could take. There are 2 suns and 3 teddybears. They are made using Cotton Tots The yellow color is called Sunshine, the white was (I think) Wonder White. I can’t find the wrapper right now. I used US#8 needles.
Also, I have been working on the Oregon Shawl. I sorta lead a KAL on Yahoo, the Oregonshawlkal. Previously, I had managed to knit 3 repeats of the center pattern. This is a wonderful Shetland style shawl, which means that the first part that is being knitted is the center square. Then stitches are picked up on all sides of this square to knit the often large border. On the Kal I said I was going to do 3 repeats on the center this week. Well, I almost managed. I did two and a half. Here is the proof:
My goal for next week is another three repeats, for a total of three and a half repeats. I have five and a half repeats done of the total of 13 repeats needed. Okay, enough with the technical specs. I have enjoyed knitting this sofar, and it is not going to go back to the back burner. I am determent to get this shawl finished without any more interruptions. There, I said it. Now we will see how long that is going to last. 😀
