Knitlypics! Or knitting during the games

The Shawl is Done!

It has been bathed, blocked and photoed!

It’s in my project page – photos and process and the beads used!  Though not nearly as many as I thought – so I have more beads to use on something else!  I will try another technique for the next time….

I am now working on a monogram pillow cover, perhaps finished by the closing ceremonies?  Maybe…..


Shawl making and skating watching

19 Feb

Here I sit – after watching Charlie and Meryl win the gold in Ice Dancing – and beginning to cast off the shawl!


I expect to be able to finish this part today and get on to the bath and blocking…  yay!!!

Day 4 Olympic knitting!

11 Feb

I have been working on my Dew Drops faithfully and trying to get enough in that I can finish it before the Olmpics are over –

I have just added the first of the beads (!) and am on the top end of the third chart – (of 6 I believe).  Adding lots of stiches!  I am at about 300 now and will get up toward 700 by the time I get done!

Here is the latest (scrunched up) image I have.

Dew Drops Shawl Day 1

7 Feb

So I started this little thing (OK it will not be little by the time I’m done) last night while watching the beiginning of the Olympics.

The Japanese Man’s Short program for the team event – goodness that boy made it look easy!


Blew them all off the ice.




So here’s what I’ve got so far.
