WIP Wednesday 7/18/12

I’m still working on the same three projects as I was the last two weeks, but I am almost done with two of them!  I am currently in the process of binding off the Radiance Shawl.  This should take quite awhile, because there are a lot of stitches at this point (over 700!).  The pattern gave the option of either doing a plain bind-off or a picot bind-off- I wasn’t too impressed with the way the picots were looking, so I’m working a nice, plain, stretchy bind-off instead.

The last clue for the Wendy Knits Summer Solstice Mystery Shawl was released yesterday.  Here is what my shawl looked like after last week’s clue (chart D):

I expect to be done with this shawl at some point this week, as this chart isn’t much bigger than the last one and I finished that pretty quickly.  At the very latest, it will be done next week (provided that I don’t make some huge mistake and have to frog most of it!)  I’ve really enjoyed working on it, as well as the sense of community in the Wendy Knits group on Ravelry during the knit-a-long, and I am sad that I am almost done.

Last but not least, work is still progressing slowly but surely on the Honey Bunches shawl.  I have finished the second garter stitch section, and am working on the second lace section.  I imagine that my speed on this shawl will pick up immensely once I’ve finished the other two. As you can see, Maddie is immensely proud of my work. And trying to get my attention so that I will give her more treats.

What are you  working on this week?  Head on over to Tami’s Amis’ Work in Progress Wednesdays to see what everyone else is working on.


  1. Lovely, I always miss the begining of the KAL's and as a result never participate. Guess I should start watching the group more closely

  2. 700 stitches! I wish you all the lunch and patience, I love knitting shawls but it's always the end which nearly makes me give up.

    Love the kitty guarding the WIP :-)

  3. There are so many lovely shawls. Each time I see a new one, I think this is it! But next time another beautiful one shows up, like your Honey Bunches. :-)

  4. Your kitty doesn't look like she'll hand over that shawl til you fork over them treats! So, cute with her paw on it.
