WIP Wednesday: Project Limbo

The exciting news of this week is that the Lory Shawl is finally starting to look like something. Specifically, a shawl!

I haven't done much on my Admiralty pillow, however. As you can see, I've only added one intarsia spoke section since last week:

This week is kind of a project limbo, as I am preparing for some events which start September 1, the first one being the FreshStitches Mystery CAL. I went stash diving for my CAL yarn:

I've also been prepping for next month's Chill Chaser Cardigan KAL by swatching....and swatching....and swatching some more:

Spud & Chloe Sweater in Manatee
As you can see, I had to go up a few needle sizes on my Nova Cubics needles before I achieved the correct gauge for this sweater with US #9 needles (the pattern calls for US#7, but I am kind of a tight knitter!).
Louet GEMS Worsted in Pewter & new Trendz needles from Knitter's Pride!
In addition to two big projects which I'll be starting next week, I'm test-knitting a sweater design (for someone else) and finishing up the final two patterns for my Conversation Socks ebook. Consequently, I'm trying not to start anything new until I finish something first!

  1. Lots going on! I am always tempted to join KALs but often fail to follow through.
