On My Needles


This week I finally finished the Lola Shawl.  {pictures coming soon} The ends need to be sewn in and it needs a serious blocking, but I'm calling it done.  Four long months, it's been on my needles.  Blah. It's an easy knit, but purling makes my hands hurt and it's all back and forth knitting.  The border was worth it, though.  the simplicity of the lace edge is exquisite.  I'm tempted to keep it, but it's meant for  another home.  I may use the lace design to create a cowl.  In the round.  No more purling.

I've also started another pair of mittens.  One can never have too many mittens, right?

What's on your needles right now?

  4. On my needles right now is my second Farmer Market hat! Knit the first one yesterday!
    This is such an easy knit - are all your patterns this easy!!! Will let you know when I share pictures on my blog.
    Do you knit continental style? I just can't master purl that way but for knit it's just great.

    1. Yay! It is such an easy pattern and I strive to create patterns that are simple in both style and ease. I can't wait to see your pictures!

      I'm with you on knitting styles... I do knit continental, but my purl is so loose that way, I have a hard time getting gauge.
