I swear I have other interests than Halloween. Especially when it comes to my knitting. I actually have four projects on the needles currently.
My main big giant project of DOOM is my Traveling Woman Shawl designed by Liz Abinante of Feministy.com. I'm using the colorway Stonechat in Malabrigo Sock. So far so good, I haven't messed up the pattern yet. I'm still working in stockinette though, and I haven't gotten to the pretty lacey part of the design. I guess I really have no excuse to mess up at this point, so I'm definitely glad it's going well.
Right now it looks like this:
I love the colors! Stonechat is my absolute favorite Malabrigo colorway. It just calls to me... and it's so soft. I love petting it. So currently it's at shawlette size, and I want it to be huge. Because I'm huge, and I actually want to be able to use this when it gets cooler. (Not cold, I live in Texas. Cold rarely happens here.) I think I have another 20 rows or so of the boring yet safe stockinette left before I start the scary lace prettiness. It's currently my biggest knitting project to date, so I'm a little apprehensive about the whole thing.
But I used to be nervous about doing socks, and I rock those pretty well if I do say so myself. Tomorrow I think I'll do a sock montage of the ones I've completed. It's only four pairs so far, but they look pretty spiffy.
Speaking of socks, the Halloween ones are going fairly well. I have another three inches left on the first sock before I start decreasing for the toe, and then it's on to sock number two. Since I have no real plans today other than working on projects, I think I should be well into sock two before I hit the hay.
Well it's time to get my day started, I have a costume and socks to finish! Go Go Go!
