Just for fun, I decided to take a photo of all the shawls I have in progress.
From left to right, we have the Swallowatail (PDF File), the Lyra (Ravelry), the Travelling Woman (Ravelry), and then the itty bitty black piece is supposed to be the Daybreak. What I don’t have pictured is the Boxleaf Triangle and the Herbivore.
Why so many?
Well, I reached the nupp section of the Swallowtail and I didn’t think that would make good car knitting. So I thought, “Hey!, The Daybreak will work!” Plus, that’s supposed to be a present for Mom.
The problem with that is I chose to do it in black. I’m also having problems remembering how to differentiate between make one left and make one right. So. Not good car knitting.
As for the Lyra? Definitely not good car knitting.
That’s how the Travelling Woman came to be. I didn’t want to throw that yarn back in the stash after having ripped the Damson and I didn’t want to attempt the Damson again. So. I started the Travelling Woman.
In the end I worked on the Swallowtail in the car.
As for the Herbivore? I was 3/4ths into binding off when I ran out of yarn.
So. I need to rip back a few rows to make sure I have a nice garter stitch edge then I can bind off again. But it’s the whole “rip back a few rows” that’s holding me back.
The Boxleaf Triangle has been hibernating for months. I just lost interest in it.
Hopefully, posting about all these projects will get my ass in gear and motivate me to finish some of these up. The weather is certainly cooperating!
There’s nothing like a rainy day to get the knitting mojo in gear.
Happy Monday, people! (That sounds so wrong.)
