June Knitting. Oh dear.

Dear friends!

It's been such a long time since I have posted any knitting here. Yes, I have been terribly busy with exams, studying, exams, studying, more exams... it's awful! I have barely had time to knit those weeks. As I advanced to you, I have started a triangular shawl and another "warm woolies" hat but in wool/acrylic/alpaca. I'll also show you the other Rainbow hat (same pattern) I knitted, together with the first one. The hat is lovely, although the yarn is soooo itchy! Gosh. But it looks quite elegant when knitted. More than the ball itself. Yes. Then, the shawl. I am increasing at end and beginning every other row - but, you'll notice I got tired of stockinette stitch and I have started doing a 2x2 rib decoration. I am not sure how this will go. I'll probably do 10 rows of ribbing then go back to stockinette. It will look decorative, maybe. I am not sure if that will work. Any suggestion? I am not sure what I'll finish first. And I am not sure the remaining ball of alpaca will be enough to finish the hat. Oh gosh. It'll be smaller, I think...

Hi Flavio! Sounds like you have been extremely busy! Don't forget though to take some time for yourself and enjoy your knitting...

Are you doing two shawls? Both look lovely, so far! Love the dark yarn... I, too, am knitting a triangular shawl. I've got it posted on my blog if you'd like to check it out. Its grown alot since the last images I've put up.

Hello Michele!

The dark one is a hat, actually :) Yes, it's a lovely yarn although it's a bit itchy :)

The triangular shawl is growing :)

I am going to have a look at your blog :)

Thank you!

Hi Flav,
I love what's on your needles right now. I esp. like the hat you started in garter stitch with the rib knit. And your hats with the little curls at the top remind me of the Teletubbies!

BTW, congrats on being from the best soccer country in the world! :^)

Hey there Stacie! :)

I have worked quite a lot on both things now. The hat is practically at the end now, and the shawl, I am figuring out other possible decorations for it :)

Thank you again for checking ;)
