My current work in progress:

1. Drachenfels, designed by Melanie Berg, knit from Madelintosh Pashmina in the Black Walnut, Seasalt, and Mineral colorways on a 4 mm (U.S. size 6) needle.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

On and On and On

That’s where I am on my as yet unnamed circular shawl. Knitting on and on and on.

I have done the last set of increases so I am now up to 576 stitches around, so each round is taking a lo-o-ong time to complete. I did make some progress over the weekend, though, even though I did no knitting at all on Saturday as I was busy teaching classes. And very little knitting yesterday, come to think of it.

Since I didn’t bother to swatch, and I changed my mind about a couple of the stitch patterns after I started knitting, I don’t have a really clear idea of how good this will look once it is off the needles and blocked. I picked lace patterns that (to me at least) seem to go together, so hopefully the end result will be more or less pleasing to the eye. But I won’t really know until it’s off the needles and spread out.

I’m betting I’ll be working on this for at least another week, so I have at least a week of suspenseful knitting ahead of me.

I’ve got some of this going on:
