My current work in progress:

Sundew,by Martin Storey, knit from Rowan Softyak DK, using 3.25mm and 4mm needles.

Argus Shawlette

As I mentioned yesterday, I finished the shawlette that I was working on last week on Saturday evening.

Here it is in its unblocked state.

Cat included for scale. Unblocked, it measures a petite 40″ across the top and 20″ down the center back.

And here it after blocking.

It now measures a surprising 54″ across the top, and 25″ down the center back. And it took under 350 yards of fingering weight yarn. Madelinetosh Tosh Sock, in the Baltic colorway, to be exact. I used a U.S. size 5 (3.75mm) needle.

I’ve named this design the Argus Shawlette. Here it is being modeled by Gwendolyn:

And another:

I’m working on the pattern for this baby even as we speak. It’s very easy to knit and a nice speedy project.

Help for Haiti

Today I went into my Ravelry Pattern Store and have edited all the patterns there to reflect that from now through January 31, 2010 I am donating 50% of my profits from all Ravelry pattern sales to Doctors Without Borders.
