Work in Progress Wednesday

I have lots in progress, though I am mostly working on the lace shawl.

First is Shetland Tea Shawl from A Gathering of Lace.  I have been moving at a good pace and am halfway through the edging in just two days.  With more rain on the horizon, I'm hoping to finish by this weekend.  This is an alpaca and silk yarn and I love the feel and color.

Second is a sweater for my mother.  This is a technique experiment.  I've taken Fritillary by Louisa Harding and made it a top down sweater because I will not have enough yarn.  So far it is coming out very well.  I just have to finish the lace border for the bottom of the body and then I can decide how much longer I can make the body.

Then finally I'm working on the second fingerless mitt from Beth Brown Riensel's Latvian Fingerless Mitts' class.  

Go check out all the great projects at Tami's and have a great fiber day!  One last picture of the beach from this morning's walk.


  1. Those are so pretty and inspirational.

  2. Cunning plan on the technique experiment - good way to ensure you don't run out or yarn at a crucial moment!

  3. WOW..that shetland tea shawl is gorgeous
