I’ve been knitting a lot lately, but on different projects so it doesn’t seem like there’s really much progress overall. I did manage to knit a dishcloth this week in a few hours in front of the TV. Nothing fancy, just a garter stitch square knit from corner to corner.
I’m getting close to being done with my Scokapalooza 4 socks. I turned the heel yesterday and I am now working on the foot. I’m still behind on MS3 – not done with the first clue still! After these socks are done, though, I can work more on it finally. These socks have to go out the first week of August, so I’m trying to get them done as soon as I can so I don’t have to worry about it. I’ve started the shawl for the Prayer Shawl Swap and I think it will end up being a quick knit. I’m using US 10.5’s, which is very uncommon for me, so even though I just started it, there’s a lot done. I won’t tell much about the pattern or yarn right now, but here’s a sneak peak photo of it:
I know a lot of people out there are taking breaks from blogging to read the new Harry Potter book. I did get my book at midnight, but I’m not stopping the world to read it. I certainly don’t want spoilers, though. I’m staying away from the places on the web that are talking about it and only one other person I know is reading it, so I think I’m safe from spoliers. It’ll take me a while to read it. I’m working on reading book 6 over before I start on the new one, but that shouldn’t take too long.
Have fun knitting and reading (to those reading the new HP book). More project updates soon!
