My Silken Scabbard is separated under the sleeves now, and I have merged the cables to the sides. It feels like progress is glacial… I don’t like the way the pattern is written at all, and to be honest I might have given it up, except my husband, who rarely notices sweaters, loved it when I tried it on. So I’m still going, but I think I might work on a sleeve for awhile, to get some actual progress. My socks are nearly done, so I cast on for a shawl with some Kureyon Sock, bought in a moment of insanity when the yarn first came out.
This is the “Simple Yet Effective Shawl” from Cosmicpluto Knits. The pattern is super easy, and I love the way the sock yarn looks knit up – after swatching I realized this was not going to be socks, but it’s very nice here. The hardest part was winding the skein into two balls – the yarn is some of the stickiest I have seen!
