Today’s Table – Crown Prince

I have picked up the Crown Prince shawl again after a year and a half. Last seen here. I thought it was about time I finished it.

I have just the top half of the sixth cross up the side to do, then the row of crosses along the top. Then I get to cast on for the edgings, graft them on, and then block. Not insurmountable, but from here it still feels kind of epic.

To fill out this post a little, and because I said I would, here are the flamingos on my balcony. They fill me with near endless happiness.

I am just waiting for the weather to warm up enough for me to share my coffee with them each morning!

Today’s Table

I thought I’d show you some of the things I’ve been working on. I also thought that if I made myself show you what I’m working on each week, it is the incentive I need to have something finished to show you! This will also help me make smaller projects that finish faster to help me not get bogged down in projects like the never ending shawl which I have now been working on for over a year! Sometimes the unending projects can be soul draining. Instant gratification can really help (in small doses)!

With that in mind, I’ve been working on some watercolour illustrations which I’m hoping to have up on Ghoti Industries and Etsy for sale shortly. I’m really digging flamingos at the moment. Had you guessed?

There’s also this pair of mittens which I began just before Christmas to have something small to work on that was easily transportable to knit night. Of course, I haven’t had the time of energy to go to knit night since beginning them, but that’s okay. I’ll get there next week.

Sorry that picture’s so dark. I ran out of sunlight when I put lunch on for a friend!

So what are you all working on? What are you up to with yourselves?
