I haven't been knitting a whole lot lately--we had a very hot few days, which meant I didn't feel like sitting around with wool all over my lap. I've spent a lot of time working on this, my current cross-stitch project. I think it will be a wedding gift for a friend of mine. It's a huge piece, but the wedding date isn't even set, so I have plenty of time!
What I have been knitting, though, is pretty awesome. I'd stumbled across this pattern on Ravelry, and before I knew it, I was part of a knitalong and serving as a moderator for the community. It's been great fun. My shawl is almost done; then I have to think of something new to knit! Well, that's not quite true. There's another shawl associated with the KAL . . .
Here, it's off the needles due to an unfortunate misjudgment regarding how much yarn I had left. Fortunately, I have a lifeline in, and it was a good opportunity to get a look at it spread out.
Oh, and I also finished the latest pair of mindless socks. Stripey.
