On The Needles Friday – August 31, 2012

This week I have more OFF the needles than on the needles.

I finished this Mystery SKAL a couple weeks ago, but finally got a picture of it on my dress mannequin.  Although it’s a blurry picture, and doesn’t do the color justice, it does give a view of what it will look like when worn (if I didn’t have any arms!).


This week I finished my bright and fun Cancun shawl.  That’s the colorway of the hand-dyed yarn, not the actual name of the pattern.  I purchased this as a kit at a LYS and it was an easy knit.  A 12 row pattern with rows 11 and 12 as eyelet:

This shawl has not yet been blocked, but I am loving the potential of the drape and ruffle on the edge:

Again, my apologies for the blurriness of the photo’s, there are just some days that I have a bit of shake in my hands and I had to make a decision to quickly snap these pics, or forgo the post due to time constraints this morning.  (In other words I have no idea where my tripod is and didn’t have time to find it!).

Finally on the shawl front, I am still working on my Vermont Leaves shawl.  I’ve signed up to finish this as part of a Labor Day Finish It Up challenge, but upon reading the next 80 or so rows that need done, I am not sure I’ll finish it this weekend:

I also signed up to finish the second sock on my On Hold Socks that have been in hibernation for months now.


I may have signed up for a bit more knitting than I’ll accomplish, but I’m going to give it my best shot!

What’s on your needles this weekend?

  1. Nice shawls! Is the pattern for the red shawl the one where you do a loopy crochet for the bind off? If so, I’ve done it a number of times in Bernat Homespun….a fun project. Love the purple!
