Wednesday's Knitting Update

i finished two Boo Shawlettes last week, I thought I was making shawls but both turned out more like scarves----operator error or just because they sit unblocked.  Master Blocker is behind 9 shawls right now, I have to figure out a way to do this myself but the only large flat area is the floor and I can not get up and down off the floor without a lot, and I mean a lot of difficulty. 

Here are some shots of Temptress in Posh Audrey--Red,  Its a Red Lipstick Day, and Morticia in Rowan Fine Lace Black. 

I started Kristen Kapur's Mystery Knit A long a half pi shawl, I started it Sunday afternoon and have done the first 3 clues in the first 3 days.  I will work on clue 4 the next few days and be caught up bu Monday when Clue 5 arrives. 

I ordered from Jimmy Beans some Freia Handpaint Lace in Vertigo
for the Strutting Peacock Knit Along, but it starts out in lovely peacock colors but the skein I got is the reverse of this so its lots of brown  So today I ordered an additional cake of that yarn in Maple
and will do some piecing ---not really any different then if I used individual colors all along.  I am going to make Lankakermo's Panache with this yarn.   For the Boo Moon Shawl I went into stash and got some gradient shades of Blue Palette and I will be doing New Beginnings, this one will probably be without beads, I need a little break from the little time suckers! 

What do you want to knit this summer??  KNIT ON!

  1. Can you put your foam blocks on the dining room table to block the smaller ones??
