Work in Progress Wednesday

Another week has flown by.  I'm finally getting over my cold or whatever it has been - nearly two weeks and two trips to the doctor.  I have gotten a lot of knitting done which is the good thing.  In a bit of a rush so here goes.

First I'm working on some linen hand towels as a gift.  This is little arrowhead lace in Louet sport weight linen on a size two needle (I think).  The picture doesn't do justice to the beautiful shade of green.


And I plunged in last night on my tam and just picked a color without swatching more.  (See yesterday's post).  So far I am very happy with it.  Before the ribbing was done, I put it on string to make sure it would fit my head, and so far so good.  I did use a knitting app called KnitEvenly that helped me place the 40 increases when going from ribbing to pattern.  I don't know if it is for anything but iphone but check it out.  Makes increasing and decreasing math very easy!


Hard to get a good picture at this point but by next week, look out.

It's Wednesday,  head over to Tamis Amis to check out all the other great WIP's.

  2. Very good to hear you are on the mend.

    Love the hand towel. I'm also still trying to find the best camera in the house that will show the colours of my projects.

  3. Both of these projects are just amazing---I love the colours on the hat, and the texture of that towel makes me totally envious of the person who's getting it as a gift!
