So I just finished up a huge knitting project which I can’t share with you until November 2011. It was a lot of math and brain melt. It involved taking an intricate cable, flipping it upside down, and mirroring it. It was a huge undertaking and I’m glad it’s done. I have taken the days after to finish up a lot of projects that have been hanging around unfinished for months. One of them, which I wasn’t sure if it was actually going to be a real pattern, is this shawl. Weave it.
Now that it’s done I like it even more than when I was knitting it. The fabric has a nice soft hand and with the woven stitches a little thicker. This shawl is super easy to knit and I’m re-knitting it now just to double check the pattern and also changing the increases. Monika commented that she didn’t like the yo’s because it took away from the shawl. I think she might be right so I’m changing it up.
I’ve also started another knitting project because I can’t have any less than 5 projects going at once. It’s easy, reversible, and has a great texture.
I hope to have weave it done and ready for testers this week. I’m knitting it again in a beautiful purple and a vibrant acid green. It’s just about the prettiest color combination I’ve seen in a long long time.
In other news Oops the goat who had a serious infection in his shoulder joint has made an amazing recovery. He’s not 100% but he’s no longer a 3 legged lame goat. He’s romping around (albeit slowly) and doesn’t seem to be in pain. He still has a while longer on his antibiotics but I’m so relieved to see him feeling better.
