What We’re Working On…

Deann is currently working on…

We have been busy this week with things that haven’t allowed me a lot of time for knitting.. But what time I have had I decided to focus on my shawl that I started last week. I have made it to the decreases now and am looking forward to seeing how it shapes up now with the short rows. I am not overly familiar with short rows yet so this will be a bit of an adventure.. should be interesting. 🙂

I am still loving the colors as they knit up and really like the subtle striping going on. I have now added the second ball of yarn. I chose to do an invisible join for this one. I think it worked out nicely. The colors are actually brighter than what is shown here in the picture. I think it will show better when I do the finished pictures, especially if we have some sunshine by then.

I have a knitting friend coming into town the last week of this month and I am hoping to have this shawl all finished so that I can wear it when we go out together. 😀

I’m working on another colourwork cushion for my daughter, because I’m getting this design ready for pattern release and need some clear photos to show how to sew in the zip. I also want to test out the pattern thoroughly myself before Deann edits it and I put it out to testing.

This will be the third cushion Seona is getting for her room! We thought about purple and white for this one, but a hunt in the stash didn’t give us a suitable purple. We went for this sugar pink colour instead. Another WIP is also getting her room ready to paint pink to house said cushions 🙂

I’m waiting on a cushion insert and zip to arrive for this one, but should hopefully have the knitting finished by the time I get those.


Don’t forget to tell us what you are working on this week!
