Back to the Knitting

Whew, what a busy weekend.

As I said yesterday, I did take some knitting with me, but only knit during the Pieffer Hill Race. I got a lot done on my Scoop du Jour. As a matter of fact, the back and both fronts are done. The first sleeve is cast on.

The color is a bit brighter than the actual sweater (it's a much dustier blue).

This is the back after blocking. I think I'm going to have to do a light steam block, as I want the ribbing to be a bit more open.

The other knitting I got done:

The Landscape Shawl is back to where I had to frog. Right now this is a fun knit, but I'm guessing as I add one stitch every row, that it's eventually going to become very tedious. However, it's just what I wanted. The drape on the fabric is fabulous. It's denser than most shawls (not much lace in it) so it will add a little warmth for when I need it on those early chilly mornings.

So those are what I seem to be working on right now. I think I can Scoop done in the next couple of days... let's hope. Sleeves can be a bit of a challenge for me. I'm already thinking about the next "main" project since it's so close to being done.

Have a great Monday and Happy Knitting!!!
