A few of you have been wondering where I've been for the last week. Well, I haven't sat at the computer for DAYS and I'm trying to get caught up on reading all of your blogs. I've missed you all and am curious to see what you've been up to, so bear with me, I'll get to your blog very soon.
In spite of not posting or reading blogs in about a week, I HAVE been knitting. The Zephyr socks are coming along ... because they have to. I'm anxious to finish these by Saturday in time for Project Spectrum. The colors for February and March are Blue, White and Gray and since this Regia Bamboo sock yarn has all these colors in them, I'll be mad knitting on these for a few hours to finish them. I can't wait to try that jogless bindoff!
I've been working on the Shoulder Shawl in the Cherry Leaf Pattern from Victorian Lace Today, but when I stretched it all out ... well, I'll let the photos tell the story.
I like these gradual colorway changes in the yarn on these two sections, but....
what is with the "stripe"?
What happened to gradual color changes?
Everything has a gradual color change expect that one spot! BLECH!
I'm not thrilled with the "stripe" going through this so I've tossed it in a bag like it's in "time out" or something. I just can't look at it. When I bought the yarn I thought it would be perfect for a shawl, but sometimes you just never know until you knit with it. So, dear reader, what would YOU do?
Option 1: Finish it and hope that it looks better once blocked?
Option 2: Frog it and hope to find a project suited better for the yarn at a later date?
On a positive note, yesterday these little beauties arrived!
