all good things (all good things)

While my Featherweight is quietly draining my will to knit (I’ve picked up for the collar! Each row is 1201703284 stitches! Only twelve rows left?), I’ve also been working on something else that’s a little easier on my sanity.

I like to have two projects on the go, during the school year – one to knit at home that’s a little more complicated and maybe a little less portable, and another that’s very plain and quite portable to knit at school. (I’m in a position where knitting during my lectures. It’s absolutely wonderful.)

This is the project I started for school, and it’s been going so quickly – although, as is the nature of triangular shawls, it goes slower the closer I get to finishing.

Still, I’m finding myself very satisfied with this project. The pattern is Daybreak, and I’m working it up in the Koigu I mentioned a couple of entries ago, and everything about it just seems shiny and awesome. The stripes are addicting! The slipped stitches totally mesmerize me! The colour scheme is the same as everything else I’ve ever knit, but that’s okay because it’s going to get worn as a scarf, and it has to match my wardrobe!

Exclamation point!
