WIP update

Clapotis in Noro Silk Garden #243 (lilac/purple/green/black)

Clapotis

I'm actually much further along than what this picture shows, have managed to get to the drop stitch part of the scarf. I really like this pattern, it's easy enough and yet not mind-numbingly boring. The Noro yarn though, is another story - I have a love/hate relationship with it. When it's good, the drape and the loft is very very good; but when it's bad, the twigs, bits of nests, seeds etc poke my hand and irritate me to no end.

Not a lotta love for this lace shawl right now, I'm about 1 rep past the border.. have had to rip out the border 3 times and finally got it right on the 4th try. It was the stitch markers - the pattern has decreases that are worked across the stitch markers and was extremely confusing, so have done away with the stitch markers. I've also had to rip out the center panel pattern couple of times, and it was only cos I had help that I didn't need to rip out more. So Madli is on a little vacation at the moment till the stars align or something.

Filatura Summer Cami

This is my TV/anime project - it allows me to read subtitles and laugh at the jokes while knitting rounds and rounds of stockinette. I've already finished the waist ribbing part and now have 11 more inches of stockinette to go. That should last me through an entire season of anime. Thank goodness it's summer year long here.

You've gotten much farther on Madli's shawl than I ever did. I gave up in the border. My clapotis is in silk garden too, and I know exactly what you mean.
