For all of the time I have been working in the yarn shop these last 2 weeks, I really haven't gotten that much knitting done. I will show you the progress I have made:
One Forest Canopy Shawl all done and blocking:
This is a close-up of the edge: Sorry about the photos, the light is terrible today. It is much much prettier in real life.
It is a really awesome pattern and I am now totally in love with lace. This is made out of Mountain Colors Weavers Wool Quarters Color Huckleberry.
I also made some progress on my Sockaplooza 4 socks. Look a little over 1 repeat! There will be 3 repeats in the cuff and then I am debating a little about what I want to do for the foot itself. How did I manage this much knitting? Not during working hours, that's for sure. The shop has been busy with online orders, lots of customers, and boxes of yarn and patterns. I must say I love my job very very much, even with the lack of knitting time! I actually got time to knit by being a spectator at my husband's D&D game he is now attending. It is a bunch of guys from his work that get together. It is actually a lot of fun to listen to and really awesome for getting some knitting done. Even if the guys did think that my mosaic chart was an interesting map to a dungeon I was working on. hehe
Speaking of my husband, we have some good news:
He has actually been hired! Well, true start date is in early July. I just love the hat. In case you are wondering it is New + Googler = Noogler.
Coming Soon: New Yarn & New Colors!
