I am in the KAL that is being put on by Wolle's Yarn Creations. This started out as a mystery shawl but I am so far behind that the last clue has come in. As you can see, lots of drop stitches.

Now that I have finished the first part and started on the center, you have to weight your ball and take that amount off of the second skein. Then you knit from the second skein, in this way you should end up with a mirror of the first half. The left over yarn is to be used for the edging.

I decided to call my shawl Seaweed instead of the the title given by the designer Christiane Burkhard. The original name is Ocean Serenade. I thought that the color I choice for my shawl looked more like the bottom of the ocean.
This is the finished shawl. At least that is what I am aiming for.

Travel Project

My son is getting married at Disney World in two weeks. My daughter, son-in-law and I will be driving down because we like stopping along the way, as well as that my son-in-law does not like to fly. Since this is a long car drive, my daughter and I decided to do a KAL. The project that we have chosen is the Citron shawl

I am going to call my Citron, Sunset. I am using yarn purchased from Wollies Yarn Creations called Sunset.

So far so good, pattern seems easy and there are lots of knitters that have made it. We agreed to stop knitting on the shawl until the trip at the end of Section Three.

I have made us knitting aprons to wear in the car so that we won't lose anything. They came out quite cute and I will post pictures.

I am off to meet up with my daughter, son, son-in-law and his fiancee to go to dinner.
