Popping In

A pop-in post to give you a progress update on my knitting….

I am woefully behind in my Ravellenics project, but I’m ok with that.  As I’ve said, I knew this would happen… But, I’ve separated for the sleeves and am about 3 inches down the body:

The top picture is the more accurate in terms of color:  dark gray.  I love how it is coming out.  I have to get to 10 inches from the underarms to the bottom ribbing.  Then knit the arms.  Then knit the hood.  Then knit the buttonbands.  Five days to finish.  Ha!  Are you participating in the Ravellenic Winter Games? How is it going?

In the meantime, because it was easier babysitting knitting, I finished my Jimmy Beans Wool Downton Abbey Knit-a-Long shawl:


I have not yet blocked it and will post a picture when I have. It will show the pattern much better….

And I finished my Steek This Coffee Cozy:


I’m going to do another post with details about how I cut this up and added a buttonband (not pictured!).

That’s all you get for today.  More during my next knitting break….
