Progress!

Last time I posted I mentioned how I signed up for Homespun Podcast‘s shawl KAL for the month of January.

Well I am happy to say that I am making some progress on my Color Craving shawl, I have just finished knitting the first section, and later tonight I will be picking up the stitches in order to start the second part.

My Color Craving Shawl today after I finished the first section!

The first section has a hairpin turn in the middle that was difficult because I had to push all the stitches around the turn close to the end of my needles making them tighter then my usual tension. This made my hands and wrists sore and slowed me down. As the rows got longer the easier the turn was to make, but was still outside my comfort zone.

I am a little nervous about finishing it up before January 30 and wish that it didn’t require me to think so much. Not being able to knit on when the kids are up really limits the amount of time I can actually work on it. I am hoping that the second section requires a little less concentration. 😛

 

I am happy to say that I went out and bought a new charger to my real camera! However after taking a bunch of great pictures I sat down to upload them to the blog and I realized that I don;t have the USB cord to connect it!! Ugh!! 😦  So I am sorry I am still using iPhone pictures…maybe next week. sigh
