What’s On The Needles

I am currently designing a shawl pattern. I am using Knit Picks Comfy Sport and Shine Sport. These cotton blends are super soft to work with and the colors are fantastic.  While creating my pattern, I noticed the increases were making the shawl way bigger than I liked. After much internal struggle I ended up frogging back 20 inches. 

6:30 AM

8:00 AM 😫

I hated every inch of that. However, I had a certain shape in mind and I knew that if I fudged it I would be unhappy with the result. 

I am also working on this baby hat using some of my scrap yarn. I think the red orange color is from the Valley Yarns line. I hope the blue wool softens a little bit during blocking as it is a bit rough on the hands. 

What are you working on this Wednesday?

Until Next Time,

  1. Ugh frogging back 20 inches had to hurt but you know how you want it to look. I’m almost finished on a short sleeve summer top with some leftover yarn and a hat for someone else. Sometimes I feel like I can’t knit fast enough!

  2. Oh I hate that period of time when you suspect something is off but convince yourself that somehow it’s fine, then finally admit that you need to pull it apart. 😦 And you think that I would learn my lesson to just stop when I first suspect it but nope… I usually go back to pretending it’s fine. LOL The colors are so cheerful and bright! I love rainbow designs!! 😀
