WIP Wednesday: Targhee Terra & HKKAL

New project alert! I couldn't resist casting on for a new project with my Targhee handspun; after carefully scouring Ravelry, I decided to start the Terra Shawl from Brooklyn Tweed, which has been in my queue since February 7, 2011.
I have been able to keep up with my daily goal of 4 granny squares for the Cute Girl Squares top, which is my Holla Knits KAL project! I currently have 36 of the 48 squares I need to proceed to the next step of the pattern, which will probably happen this weekend...after I weave in all of the many ends!

In other news, I just started the third skein of yarn for Tyler's scarf (do you really need a progress photo?) and over the weekend, I finished knitting the body of my (no-longer) 30-day sweater. I tried it on and it fit just fine, but not exactly the way I wanted it to fit; I am clearly a bit off in my calculations. There is also a very noticeable line where I joined a new skein from what I thought was the same dye lot of yarn...but apparently that wasn't the case! I decided to block it out, but not to weave in any ends. As you can see below, that line is no joke, but I want to try it on one more time before I make the decision to rip. the. entire. thing. out. Gulp!
