Join me as I share my crafty journey with you. I continue to expand my repertoire of hobbies. I knit, sew, crochet, bead and probably most importantly am a lover of science fiction. Occasionally I even pick up a book. I play Nerd Wars for Team Stargate Command which consumes most of my time.

Stitch Along Thursday

     I'm joining Tammy over at Life and Yarn or Yarn and Life for a stitch along.  I've been working on two projects in the last few weeks.  Usually I'm pretty monogamous with my projects at least until I get side tracked or hit a hiccup.  I've been working on a shawl since the middle or so of August.  Its a nice shawl pattern but I think I'm a bit shawled out or something, I've been putting that aside often to work on other things.  I made some good progress, then I ran short on yarn.  I decided to get more as opposed to just binding off where I ran short.  I managed to get another skein in the same color.  Here is my progress so far, I just have a few rows to go on the last chart.
It's a crappy picture, but shows the lace decently.  I've put beads in this as well.  The yarn is Holiday Yarns Flock Sock in the color Lavender Buds.  The pattern is Lilac Wish Lace Shawl.  It'll be interesting to see how much this grows when I block it. 
     I've also been churning out some more baby items, which is probably why I haven't had too much shawl knitting mojo.  Those instant gratification projects are addicting.  So here is the first Entrechat.  This one is actually finished except for a button. 
The yarn is Malabrigo Rios in the Piedras colorway.  I've had this yarn sitting around for too long, its so pretty knitted up, I don't know why I didn't do it sooner.  I'm still working on the second one.
This one is also Mal Rios but in the Solis colorway.  I don't have much to go, I think just the last couple garter rows and the bind off.
     I've acquired two more skeins of yarn as well.  I got more yarn to finish up the shawl and a skein to make another baby hat. 
This is Madeline Tosh DK in the Hosta Blue colorway.  I'll be making this into Sassafras.  That's it for now, just a quick little update.  Until later.  Happy Crafting!
