WIP Wednesday: Flying by!

Hello everyone!

Can you believe it's August? - I certainly feel like I blinked in March, opened my eyes a moment later and it was August!

Both of my current WIPs are taking part in the Ravellenic Games 2012 and are slowly making it to the finish line. First one in the race is Toorie hat made with yummy and squishy yarn which I wrote about earlier in July. It knits up really quickly as I'm using DK weight yarn and it's such a lovely break from fingering weight yarn that have been occupying my needles due to endless shawl knitting :-)
I will be travelling by train tomorrow for couple of hours so I'm hoping to have some quiet knitting time ob board and have it finished by the end of the week - I can't wait to make pom poms hehe.
Crushed Blueberries
Second in the race is my  Haruni Shawl, which after some trouble with gauge being too loose (typical for me) was frogged and restarted. This is my first all-over lace shawl and so far, so good. The pattern in the main section is really easy to memorise and it's only worked on the RS rows - added bonus!

The texture reminds me of waffles - yum!


As always, check out Tami's Amis for more inspirations! 
And also Ginny's blog which is pretty cool as well :-) x

  11. I've also had Haruni in my queue for a long time - but it looks so hard that I've put off attempting it. Please keep updating us with how it's going! Maybe you can convince me to get a move on with it!

  12. Oh, that Haruni shawl---the texture really is delicious, although I'm seeing leaves more than waffles, but I've always got trees on the brain, so...

  15. I love the little flecks of purple on grey in the yarn you're using for your hat! It's going to look fantastic. Haruni is gorgeous already! The only thing that puts me off top down shawls is that every row takes longer than the last, lol :)
