Way back in October, Kristi from Red Dog Knits started the “Day of the Dead” knit along. I should have known better than to conjure up the spirit of my Grandma Alta….the ultimate procrastinator. She truly made putting things off an art form, which included throwing things out and apparently extended to knitted items. My mother told me she never finished anything just made endless swatches. Well I’ve gotten a little past that but, it was only last night (morning?) at 1 AM that I finished my October knit along project. I give you the unblocked version of the Kevat Shawl. Tonight…let the blocking begin!
Of course I am still cranking away on the endless parade of cascade fixation socks, my latest effort with a mini-cable pattern on the cuff in some lovely pastely blues and greens. Oh and look what came in the mail the other day! Looks like I’ve got my work cut out for me. I don’t know about the rest of you but I always have intentions of knitting for the warmer temps when it’s cold out and then preparing for winter woolies when it’s warmer. I just can’t seem to bring myself to do it though. I find myself knitting summer socks mid to late summer and warmer socks and shawls mid-winter and early spring. Perhaps I’ve got more Alta genes than I think?
I will post the progress of the shawl blocking then perhaps a little more shawl pr0n? 😉
