The past few months I have been too busy with other areas to do anything knitting wise. Gardening season is in fullswing and every spare minute has been devoted to getting the garden ready and tending it.
But now the garden is in daily maintenence mode for a few weeks so that has freed up a spic of time for me to knit a bit!
This week I really focused hard on finishing up all my UFOs. And this weekend I finally finished two items: Diamond Lace Shawl and Purple Cable scarf. Woohoo!
I finished the cable scarf Sunday and it was such a relief! I love the pattern, but I have to be honest in saying that I never want to touch “Impeccable” yarn ever again. If/when I make this scarf again I will be picking a new yarn for it.
I finished the diamond Lace Scarf today. It did not end up being as long as I hoped because I ran out of yarn, so it is more of a shawlette or child’s shawl. But it is still lovely!! I love how the short rows form a lovely lacey diamond pattern, and the CottonSpring yarn gives it a beautiful texture!
Now I’m digging the baby afghan out of hibernation and hopefully will be finished by the end of this week. I am so excited to be getting all of my knitting needles freed up for new projects. 🙂
What is on your needles today?
