WIP Wednesday

In between the circus, a parade, baking cookies, visiting a horse farm and other fun activities, two shawls came off of the needles this past weekend. My Wing of the Moth in Marmalade Kid Silk Haze and the Forest Canopy Shawl in Fire on the Mountain Socks That Rock.
I started moth sometime last summer and I know there must be people laughing right now since there are some that finished this in days (there was a moth competition at one time). Even though I put this project down many times and waiteed to pick it up again, I did enjoy knitting it - and I learned a lot! I was able to see where I needed to be in my current row from what had happened in the row below. I guess I'm learning to read my lace knitting. Now, I just need to find the time to block these beauties. I can't wait to see them in all their glory!
Of course, I immediately cast on for another shawl. Any guesses?

I'm knitting my first MimKnits pattern - Seraphim in Brooklyn Handspun.

Oh, I can't wait to see both of them blocked! I love the Seraphim pattern and definitely plan on making it this year too.

Lovely!

I can't wait to see The Moth blocked out. It might inspire me to pick mine up again!
