WIP Wednesday for 4 July 2018

Happy Independence Day to my American friends! I’m not feeling super patriotic right now, though, so that’s the extent of my blog celebration of the holiday.

Instead, let’s move on to the knitting, shall we?

I’ve been working on a test knit of the Ectoplasm Shawl for Lattes and Llamas. Since there’s a deadline for this knit to be finished, that’s about all I’ve been working on since I got my yarn for it. (The rows have reached the point where I think I may have to start bringing the socks to work for lunch break knitting again, though. Shawls get to that point when the rows reach a certain length.)

It’s been a lot of fun knitting this so far, and I’ve already started thinking of what other colors I want to knit this in. Here’s my progress by my lunch break Friday of last week:

Ectoplasm

… and then how far I’d gotten by Sunday afternoon:

Ectoplasm test

It’s amazing how much knitting you can get done on one project when you’re not working on a bunch of other ones at the same time, isn’t it?

As I said, I’ve already been thinking about what other color combinations I want to knit this in. Maybe a slow color change yarn, like a gradient or Noro or Chroma plus a stark color contrast? Or maybe black and white? Or maybe two solids (or semi-solids) from opposite ends of the color wheel?

Maybe I’ll knit one of each. As I said, I’ve *really* been enjoying this knit.

  1. That’s an intriguing pattern, and I love the color combination! And it’s great that you’re confident enough to test-knit a shawl. I don’t knit fast enough to try a shawl test-knit, though I’d be willing to try a cowl or some other quick project.

    1. Thanks, I’m enjoying it! I’ve knit so many shawls that I know how about long they take me *IF* I knit monogamously… I am seriously in awe of sweater test knitters, though!
