Getting some work done

It’s been a while, as always, but I’m still working on the sweater vest. Hubby hurt his knee and had to have surgery so that kept me busy for a bit, but I’m back to work on it. I’m almost finished with the back and once that is done I’ll post a picture of it.

I haven’t been working on much since I’ve been busy with hubby, but I do have an in between project going. I just started work at the kids school, I’ll start back in Aug, and so I now have new things to knit for me so that I look nice!! I started the Lace Cardi from the Spring/ Summer issue of Vogue Knitting.  The stitch is very easy to remember, but you really have to pay attention to the pattern, which I didn’t!!  I have 5 extra stitches on each side, but that shouldn’t really make much of a difference to the end product.

I’m using Caron Simply Soft in ocean and I love the color!!  I think I’m going to like this when it’s done.  Now to give Mario some love too.


My Sun Ray

I never in my life thought that I would be knitting a shawl, but here I am doing just that!  The Sun Ray Shawl by Shui Kuen Kozinski is just beautiful.  I also love the fact that it can be knit in worsted weight yarn and not lace weight, although you could use that also.  I’m using Caron Simply Soft in Light Country Blue, I had 3 skiens in my stash and need to start clearing out some of it.  So far so good, everyone says that it is an easy pattern and it is, but the repeats are not clicking in my head right now.  I’m sure the more I do the more it will stick, so I’ll just keep to the chart until I get it.  Here what I have so far…

The picutre makes it look gray, but it is in fact light blue!  I going to keep working on this, but not sure if something else will run and jump on to my needles or hooks!  LOL
