WIP Wednesday 91

Well, I may not have blogged much about knitting recently, but that certainly doesn’t mean that knitting hasn’t been happening!  We finally got new mobile phones last week, so a couple of new phone cosys had to be knitted, I knit another moebius cowl, a pair of fingerless mitts for my Dad, and I also knitted not one, not two, but three Milos!  Here’s a sneak peak of the yarn that I used – but you’ll have to wait until Friday to see the completed articles.

So, what’s on the needles just now?  M loved the Milos that I knitted, and has requested one for her. The sizing doesn’t go up to her size, so I’m having to wing things a little. I’m knitting it in this lovely Sublime Egyptian Cotton, in Peony (her choice).

And finally, I’ve decided to try my first KAL (Knit Along), with Ysolda’s Follow Your Arrow shawl. Remember those Choose Your Own Adventure books from when you were a kid?  Well, this is like a knitted version of that! Every week a new clue is released, and there’s a choice of clues – apparently there are 32 different shawls possible. For fear of spoilers, I can’t post photos here, but here’s the yarn I’m using – Eden Cottage Yarns Titus 4 ply, in Misty Woods. This photo doesn’t do justice to the colour.  For those of you who are interested, I’ve chosen Clue 1A so far, which certainly begins with an unusual construction for the start of a shawl!  Fun though 🙂 .  Are you doing the KAL?  Please let me know in the comments section!

That’s all from me today, but I’m off to catch up with what everyone’s been up to over at WIP Wednesday at Tami’s Amis and at Ginny’s Yarn Along – it’s been too long!

  1. Love the color of your yarn. I’m doing the KAL in two colors, started with !B and continuing with 2B after haunting the Spoiler thread:) One of the most fun KAL’s ever, I think.

  2. I’m doing the KAL too and I’m so glad that I decided to join in. I’ve never knit a shawl before. I knit Clue 1B and now I’m on to 2B. In 1B I did my first garter tab and now I’m doing short rows! Just awesome.

  3. Thanks everyone… I’ve decided to go with 2a – I like lace knitting, although short rows are definitely fun too! Haven’t started yet though, I want to get a photograph of the completed Clue 1a first.
    Thanks Sam – I’ve just updated my Rav page with how I currently plan to increase the size (the link is in the post above, if you’re interested in taking a look).

  4. I’m doing the KAL too. The colour of your yarn looks very lovely! Glad to hear some else is haunting the spoiler threat too before deciding @Kathleen. I went with 1A and 2B.
