It often comes from interesting places.
The most recent comes from Glenna over at Knitting to Stay Sane. On Saturday she posted her recently finished Pi Shawl.
This triggered my own need to knit one myself. I went through my yarn stash and decided on some very fuzzy stuff that I hadn’t been sure what to do with. It’s too fuzzy for any detail work, but I wasn’t sure I wanted to just a plain scarf with it.
The version of the Pi Shawl is one of the varients from the Knitters Almanac. It has a yo, k2tog row ever six rows to make it a little lacier but still very simple. And, honestly, I need something simple. All of the projects I have going right now (outside of the sky scarf and beekeepers quilt) are quite complicated.
I’ve burned through the center of the shawl pretty quickly, but the slog begins once the rows get really long. I started on DPNs, now I’ve got it magic loop on a 40″ circular that’ll be able to accommodate all of the stitches once it gets bigger. (Planning ahead is always a good thing.)
In other news, I finished the back of my Aidez sweater yesterday and started on the left front. I’m hoping to get through the front pieces and the sleeves fairly quickly. I’m going to have to block everything before I sew it together. Otherwise it’s just not going to go together properly.
