Okay, I'm all done grumbling about my current knitting projects. Both the Klaus sweater and the Antonia Shawl are over the halfway point. Although I must say it felt good to get it out of my system yesterday. After writing that post, I knit my fingers off and finished the sleeves on my hubby's sweater. I'm so close to being done now that I can taste it . . . or smell it. Umm, wait, actually I think that is just the smell of mushrooms still clinging to the mushroom-dyed yarn. I'll need to find some nicely scented wool wash to wash the sweater when it is all done. Any suggestions?
I mentioned before that the sweater pattern has unusual one-piece construction. Here is a picture of it in it's current state so you can see for yourself:
Now when I fold it over I'm starting to see what it will look like when it is done:
And all I have left to knit is the easy part . . . just the stockinette portion down the back:
Same goes with the Antonia Shawl, just the easy part is remaining:
I would say that I'm going to cruise through finishing up both of these but that would probably be cursing myself to some weird knitting mishap! Instead, I will just suggest that you go see what some other talented knitters are up to on this WIP Wednesday!
