I decided to make a destash version of the turtle I made last month on my Zoom Loom! This project is part of the Zoom Loom-along which is happening right now in the Woolery Ravelry group; I am using the instructions I received with the Turtle Critter Kit and various leftover bits of yarn to weave my squares. I might make more than the pattern calls for so that I can give different color combinations a try when it comes time to put everything together!
As I mentioned in my Stitches Midwest recap on Monday, I cast on for the Lory Shawl from Knitscene using one of my favorite yarns from Bijou Basin Ranch, Himalayan Trail.
As you can see, I'm not very far along - the shawl is knit long ways and I just finished the first ridge row, which took me a LONG time! It's been a while since I've used my Karbonz needles, so I was glad I could bust them out for this project.
I've also finished the first side of my Admiralty pillow for the Holla Knits KAL that's happening right now:
So far, I'm still enjoying the process, intarsia and all!
Also, last week I needed a travel-friendly project for knit night and decided to start a not-so-jumbo Jumbo Gnome (fun fact: there is a pattern sale happening on the Mochimochiland site, just enter SUMMEROFSQUEE at checkout for 15% off books and 20% off PDF patterns and kits)! I'm just using destash yarn to make a smaller worsted-weight version.
Last but not least, my Conversation Socks ebook was recently reviewed on one of my favorite blogs, Knitting Sarah - click here to check it out!
