Each row on my Oregon Vest is getting shorter and shorter which is a sure sign that I have almost finished the armhole steeks. The best thing about Thursdays is that I will work on this vest all day long, as in monogamous knitting for one day. I’ll see some significant progress and hopefully, the neck steek is not too far off in the future. I’ve finished the armhole decreases and am working exclusively in shaping the V-Neck. There is actually light at the end of the tunnel. I know you are probably bored looking at pictures of this vest and wish I could do some time warp photography for you…….soon now, soon now…. Oregon will be finished before August has ended!
I knit the last but one Adamas chart repeat today which set me to thinking about my next shawl project. Miriam Felton posted about her newest pattern, the Cloisters Wrap, this week and the minute I saw it I knew it was destined to be knit with some Jaegerspun Zephyr in Copper I had recently purchased. It was most definitely love at first sight!
Can you just picture it with this lovely Zephyr wool? I had originally purchased the yarn to knit Icarus but for some reason that shawl, despite its popularity, is not calling to me anymore.
Adamas has been a joy to knit and I’m sure Mim’s newest shawl will be equally delightful. Her patterns are very clear and logical. Hop on over to her page for more pictures of this beautiful shawl. Would you like to join me?
