Becky - she is done!

I had to wait a week for 16 inch size 3 needles to finish the armholes. They finally came today and I finished it up this afternoon. Haven't washed/blocked yet. I'm a little nervous about the ends staying put. I left long tails that I won't clip until after the bath.

This is my second straight pattern converted to knitting in the round. So easy that I just don't get why the pattern wasn't written that way to begin with.

Here's a list of what I'd like to get knit this summer -

  • Picovoli in Hempathy or Silky Wool
  • Tomato in Knitpicks Comfy
  • Martine in Knitpicks CotLin
  • Finish Birds Nest shawl
  • Finish Heartland shawl
  • Finish Shoulder shawl
I'm also working on a modified BYOB from the summer issue of knitty. I had Cotton Ease leftover from my Yoga Hoodie, Cache Coeur, and Salt Peanuts, so I'm using them to make a knitting bag. Since it won't be for groceries, I'm leaving the mesh part out. I'm using the leftover cotton ease in big stripes to minimize ends needing to be woven in.

I need to swatch the lovely Knitpicks Comfy I hope to use for my Tomato -
