My first entry for this blog gave you a list of the shawls that I had in progress. I realized this morning that I had made incredible progress in getting most of them done. I finished the 2 Baruffas, the 2 circulars (Knit picks Alpaca lace weight and JoJoland plain pi shawl), the one on my loom, and I am 6 rows away from binding off on the kidsilk haze triangular shawl. I ripped out the 2/14 wool/rayon one. I did not like the feel of the yarn. I am not sure if I will finish the Patons Lacette triangular. I am not very far on it, maybe 6". I may rip and use the yarn for a scarf on my rigid heddle loom. I am not crazy about that yarn. It is black and I need stronger glasses in order to ever work on black again. So as of today (once I finished the Kidsilk haze), I will now only have 2 of those 10 shawls to finish, the 2 entrelac shawls. Of course, you know that I have started other shawls since then. I now can add to the 2 entrelac shawls, my pink Knit Picks alpaca circular shawl, my Elsbeth Lavold Silky wool shawl, and another sport weight wool-ease shawl that I forgot about. So now, I am at 5. I hope to finish the Elsbeth Lavold this weekend on my road trip. I am taking that one and some sock yarn for sock knitting. As I hate sock knitting, I will probably make great progress on the shawl. Either way, I will knit and either way, I will have progress to show.
