progress

I am posting the progress on two of my 11 ufo's - just in case anyone is actually out there. I have been working on the R2 sweater for a while, the knitting was finished at the end of July and I finally had time to felt it! It was my first real felting project -- and the first time in a couple of years that I used the washer (nice to have a laundry doing husband). I think it turned out quite well. It did shrink and strangely enough some of the ends came out of the weave, so I will have to weave them together when I am sewing the sweater up. I am going to start the sewing tonight - so hopefully soon it will be wearable!

The other project is the creme wavy lace shawl. This one is for my dad's girlfriend. I have this shawl in more of a tan. I am really loving making it. I have progressed in my knitting to where this pattern that was so hard for me when I made mine, is now fairly easy! I can read the stitches and know where I am in the pattern at all times and I can even hold a conversation while knitting this, which I couldn't with mine. (run on sentence)

I posted the one project that I finished at PRKG (www.knitgirls.blogspot.com) It is the one time that peer pressure actually worked out well - I LOVE my knucks. Now if it would just start raining again!!

Have a great week!
