I cast on the Brambling Shawl on Friday night. By Saturday night I was working with two colors.
And on Sunday, I started the third color. So far, so good, though there is definitely more tangling/untangling now that a third color is in the mix... four ought to be a hoot!
I'm holding the subbed Haiku double, and it seems to be working out great. I love the coppery-gold color. I wasn't sure at first, with the slate, and almost ripped it out to start with a different color/arrangement, but reminded myself that I was happy with the plan... keep going! I'm glad I stuck with it.
I must be pretty impressed with myself, as I am taking daily progress photos!! Haha. The knitting and joins all seem pretty even and there aren't any gaping holes. I may have a few more or less stitches than I'm supposed to, sometimes getting a little lost in the direction, but it's not going to matter all that much in the end. It's not like there's a pattern repeat I need to be concerned about.
MDK's Field Guide No. 3 arrived, and Kay just announced a KAL for Kirsten's Colorwash Scarf -- which I am dying to cast on!! It was love at first sight. I was planning on finishing Brambling before doing that, but since BS is not what I'd call portable knitting (all those sticky tangly balls of yarn)... so I'm in! Justified. Now I need to come up with some yarn. Hm.
In other news:
I added some more bling to my WW ring last night, as I've been a member & attending meetings for 16 weeks! And I'm close to that number in pounds lost, too, so I'm happy that I'm sticking with it (doing it "my way," of course).
