Ziggity shawl from Kirsten Kapur. It practically flew off the needles. In under a week, I had a gorgeous shawl in a smoky gray and black navy. Again, I have to say I love the yarn (Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light). I have a wee bit stashed to make a sweater, and I am eager to start. I blocked the shawl fairly aggressively and love the drape. It is a bit longer, so it wraps really nicely.
granny squares would qualify. As soon as I cast off for the shawl, I picked up the crochet hook. I was able to catch up from week 4 on my granny square sampler afghan. Blair posted week 12 on Friday, and I plan to finish those three this morning. My goal was 16 grannies, and I easily have made 19. Those little squares are a great lesson in crochet. I have made so many cute patterns. Today at the park, the young girls were oohing and aahing over my collection. My kiddos love picking out the yarn colors from my bag for each square.
As soon as I finish my last granny squares, I will be picking up my mystery shawl. I have the final clue to complete. It is different from my usual style, but I am starting to really like it. Hopefully I will show it off next week. I have also been plugging along on the body of my red cardigan. It is a bit slow going on the body just good meditative garter stitch.
I am still reading When God was a Rabbit. I quickly picked up the newest Sookie Stackhouse book since my hold was available at the library. I only have a few more pages in that. It is good light reading about vampires. Crazy since it is not my usual pick, but a friend suggested them a few years ago and I actually liked them.
I am linking up again with Ginny this week for the Yarn Along. What has flown off you needles this week? Did you medal in the Games?
