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. 🙂
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.
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 like how the negative version shows the stitch pattern
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.
