On the needles

So after all of the finished work, what’s on the needles now?

Some very unflattering pictures of my work in progress:

Holey Square, in gold-colored silk, which looks a bit ragged now, but hopefully will look MUCH better when finished and blocked.

And a top-down raglan sweater, Mailin. Although top-down raglans aren’t generally my favorite, I do like the way Isabell Kraemer adds back neck shaping and modified raglan increases. And there’s something to be said for being able to bang out a sweater quickly. This pattern has an option for either a scoop neck or a cowl neck. I’m leaning towards the cowl neck, but I’ll decide when I get there (the neckline is worked last).


Well, that was a pretty beige-looking post, wasn’t it? I think we need more color next time. I have something in mind.

    What? The sweaters not finished yet? 🙂
    The gold color of your shawl is more rich in person.

    I absolutely LOVE my mailin! I wear it all the time, and plan to make one or two more, one in blue and one in tan or cream or a soft brown…beck…maybe both! I knit it it twenty days. It was the first time I knitted one thing from start to finish.

    I’ve always been interested in Mailin. Can’t wait to see how yours turns out. (Also to see what you have in mind for some color . . . )
