Funfetti finished!

It seems like once I hit the halfway point this project almost knit itself. It was so quick and satisfying! I am very happy with the way everything turned out. The pastel colors with the grey and the pops of dark orange all work really well together. It's a very narrow shawl, almost a scarf,... Continue Reading →

Funfetti progress (10)

I really can't stop working on this project. I thought I might be able to push through and get it finished, but there's still a little left to go. Another evening of watching tv and it should be done. Even with the dozens and dozens of ends to weave in, this project has been a... Continue Reading →

Funfetti progress (9)

My extra skein arrived and I have not been able to put this project down since it got here. There's still a long way to go on the charts, but the number of stitches per row is getting small and everything is going very quickly. Any time I spend knitting on this feels like it... Continue Reading →

Funfetti progress (8)

It is time for a brief pause on this project, because I've just finished off my next-to-last ball of yarn. I could keep going by working off of both ends of the remaining ball, but that seems like a recipe for a tangled headache. Instead I'll just wait for the extra yarn I ordered to...

Funfetti progress (7)

I got lots of work done on this over the weekend. I'm trying to decide how many more blocks of this pink I want to make before I swap to another. My hope was to finish off the whole mini, but if I do that it will take up almost half of the shawl. I... Continue Reading →

Funfetti progress (6)

For today's update I figured I would give you a peek at the wrong side of my shawl. The intarsia method is definitely simpler than stranded colorwork, but it sure does leave a lot of ends to weave in. I have been trying to do my best to weave them in as I go because... Continue Reading →

Funfetti progress (5)

Here's my latest shawl progress. It is still going well, and it is still the main project I reach for when I have some spare time for knitting. I always forget about the way shawls keep growing. So it feels like I should be well past the mid-way point by now, but in fact I... Continue Reading →

Funfetti progress (4)

I spent most of my weekend playing video games instead of knitting, but I did still get some good progress on this shawl. I've started on the last of my scraps from my cardigan. Once that is gone I'll have to break into the remaining mini skeins. One looming concern is the main color yarn.... Continue Reading →

Funfetti progress (3)

I got a reasonable chunk of work done on this project over the past couple days. I'm still maybe 50 rows away from the midpoint, but I'm getting there. The leftovers from my Countdown Cardi are almost used up now. I have one more partial mini left to go, and then I'll need to cake... Continue Reading →

Funfetti progress (2)

I can tell I'm getting close to the middle of the shawl because my progress looks less impressive. My motivation for this project is high, but the rows are getting longer and longer. One thing I haven't mentioned yet on this project is the slight modification I've made. The pattern calls for right leaning increases.... Continue Reading →

Funfetti progress

I made it to page 3 of 6 of the chart already. I'm still not quite to the halfway point of the shawl but I'm getting there. The intarsia is not so intimidating anymore, and things are going pretty quickly. I decided to fully embrace the scrappy nature of this project and add in the... Continue Reading →

Funfetti started!

I am on a bit of a dk weight yarn kick at the moment. I was looking for patterns to use up the last few dk minis and leftovers from my Countdown Cardi and saw that this pattern was just released. The combination of simple flat garter stich with some colorful intarsia seemed perfect. I... Continue Reading →
