Summer Knit Report

I'm still here, and still knitting, but blogging has been neglected in favour of Ravelry and my other new toy.

My plan for the red-black-metallic months of Project Spectrum was to finish my red shadowknit shawl by the end of June. Haha. Despite my best efforts to get out of the black hole of a gazillion garter stitches it's still only 1/3 done a month after it was supposed to be finished. In retrospect i have to ackowledge that it's a Very Big Shawl, all garter stitch, lace weight yarn and 2 mm neeedles, so I guess I should have seen the Garter Stitch Coma coming.

In desperation I turned my attention to Celtic, and have almost finished all parts except the sleeves.

But then I figured it was time for a quich FO, so I picked up my Sand Ridge socks (they were my February Project Spectrum project) with the intent of finishing them in the course of a half week. That was 3 weeks ago. They will be renamed Trial and Error socks. More about that in a separate post, but here's a progress shot.

Sorry about the lack of links, but I'm on vacation and blogging on a slow dial-up so couldn't be bothered!
And here are some shots for the last two days of red, black and metallic:

Garter stitch coma, ha! :-) I love garter stitch, but I still know exactly what you mean. ;-)

Fabulous red/black/metallic photos! I didn't get into this round of project spectrum for some reason.

Celtic is looking great.

Glad to see you working on Celtic! I've abandoned mine... new projects have interested my and I just couldn't get the stitch pattern correct. I can't wait to see the finished sweater.
