Work in Progress Wednesday 131

Hi everyone. I hope you had a great weekend and are having a good week as well. Also, a happy early Valentine's day! We took it easy this weekend, enjoying a nice dinner Saturday night with a Groupon to a restaurant we'd never been to. I love finding new places to eat, especially in our new neighborhood! We also did the not fun task of going through a bunch of boxes from our move that have been hanging out in our garage. Overall it was nice to just be home. I didn't get too much knitting done, but I did start the 3rd color of my Color Affection shawl.





Once I added the first few rows of the orange, I wasn't quite sure about it. Now that I'm further into it, I'm loving it. I was hoping to have it done by Stitches West, but considering we leave a week from Thursday, I'm not sure that's going to happen unless I find a LOT of knitting time. I really do love this pattern, as it's mindless, but not too boring, at least for me, due to the stripes/color change. I'd definitely consider making another one, but next time I might have it on a longer cable as It's hard to spread it out and really see the progress I'm making! I wanted mine really big (more deep than wide), so I followed someone's instructions on Ravelry to do this. I'll give more details later. :) I hope it comes out huge, as I want it to be more of a house wrap/comfy couch shawl more than anything. We'll see.

That's it for me today. I will be posting Sweet fingering for the first time (what my Color Affection shawl is made from) on the site/blog this Thursday, so be sure to check back then for that. I hope you have a great rest of your week and I'll see you again for FO Friday as well!

  11. I love your shawl and especially the orange. It looks like a sunrise or sunset how it gets more vibrant...I love the effect. I may just have to make one! Thank you so much for having this group as it is motivating me to finish some projects or at least work on them and also it is so inspiring to see others work.
