Almost Friday…

I can’t believe it’s almost Friday.  Today I have to figure out what I am going to knit tomorrow at Yarnivore’s Knit Night.  I think I want to take my lacy shawl, but it is something that I need to concentrate just a little on.  I don’t want to mess up so I will need some mindless knitting.  Maybe I can cast on for a simple dish cloth or something.  I have been meaning to knit my son a washcloth, and I think I may have some cotton yarn to make it with.  Of course I will need an easy pattern.  Maybe I will start searching for a pattern soon.  Hmm… 

Oh, and on another note, my mother said that she wanted a plain back for her sleeveless tank, which is awesome, so I won’t have to do the lace repeats.  Now I just have to figure out the decreases so that they will match the front, since the decreases for the front were worked into the lace.  🙂

Need to get things finished…

I really need to get some things finished.  I feel like I have been working on some stuff forever!  I think I started my mom’s sleeveless shell in March, and I am barely done with the front section.  I finished it up to where the sleeves begin, and I put the stitches on holders to work on later.  I tried to take a picture of it, but the color is horrible to take pictures of.  sleeveless shell 2 front section

 I have also gotten pretty far on my Lacy Shawl from the Knit.1 Spring/Summer 2008 magazine.  The pattern calls for a size 5 needle.  I started with a size 6 needle, but the pattern was too bunched up.  After much trial and error I settled on size 10 needles!  It is working up pretty fast, and the pattern is pretty easy to remember.

I also made a Cherie Amour, but I hated it and ripped it out.  here is a pic I took just before I decided it was a horrible pattern.

Sorry, I forgot to rotate the picture. 

Finally I have pics of my Marlene socks!  I have not made much of them, but they look beautiful already.

I am going to try very hard to have one of these projects (not the Cherie Amour, of course) finished by the end of next week.
