Stir Crazy

My Silken Scabbard is separated under the sleeves now, and I have merged the cables to the sides.  It feels like progress is glacial… I don’t like the way the pattern is written at all, and to be honest I might have given it up, except my husband, who rarely notices sweaters, loved it when I tried it on.  So I’m still going, but I think I might work on a sleeve for awhile, to get some actual progress.  My socks are nearly done, so I cast on for a shawl with some Kureyon Sock, bought in a moment of insanity when the yarn first came out.

This is the “Simple Yet Effective Shawl” from Cosmicpluto Knits.  The pattern is super easy, and I love the way the sock yarn looks knit up – after swatching I realized this was not going to be socks, but it’s very nice here.  The hardest part was winding the skein into two balls – the yarn is some of the stickiest I have seen!
