I don’t even want to post today. Life has not been kind to my challenge. In fact, it has reduced my progress not no-gress. Argh!
Here’s where I was:
So close to the finish. But I noticed that the needle sticking out of the knitting was the wrong color. I was knitting the shawl on a US5 instead of a US7! Nooooooo! So out it all came. Every stitch! And I have now cast on again with the proper needle. I am so far behind, but I am trying to remember, ENOUGH. It’s OK if I am not attaining my goal of a finished shawl in January. But who knows, I still have 6 days to January and a lot of sporting events to sit and knit at.
But one thing that will delay that is a hat I just must make! A friend has a new great-nephew and he just needs this hat.

So, I have some cream and beige Lamb’s Pride Nature Spun Sport and a bit of red fingering I am hoping I can use for the accent. The fingering actually feels loftier and thicker than the LP. The pattern is written for worsted and is larger than the size I need. I am hoping the numbers are going to work with the thinner yarn and make a baby sized hat. At this point, I will be happy with anything I get.
And after that hat I need to get a baby and big sister hat made from this pattern. Using this yarn.
Must remember to get another ball of the Regia to make sure I have enough.
