Week off, week on

I got lots of knitting done in my 9 nights off, although it went quickly! Now I'm in the middle of 3 on, 2 off, 4 on. I finished a few spinning projects: the Valentine's Day one (Red Roses). It's soft, fat and shiny :)

  Also finished the spinning the Corriedale/tencel. It took quite a while to finish that second skein, but it ended up being 1150m of singles. Each one was spun from the light end to the dark end, and Navajo-plied to keep the gradual color change. I'm going to weave a scarf with them, and see how that turns out.

I got a bit further on with the Jaywalkers. I'm up to the start of the 5th rainbow, now, but I still have a fair way to go to finish them before the end of the month.

As for Elizabeth, I got all the way up to 56%. Here's the 50% picture I took.

It's difficult to take a picture, now, because it's much wider than my needle. It ends up being a right triangle, but you start in the center of the hypotenuse and knit outwards. So the sides of my knitting become the hypotenuse of the triangle, and the other two sides are squished onto my needles. Anyway, chart 1, 2 and 3 are in the light green, and the medium green "diamonds" are chart 4. I'm in chart 5 now, row 21, which means row 168/225 and 56%. Next row, I'll have done over 30,000 stitches.

Wonder how big it will end up being?

Anyway, it's 10:30pm, and I've wasted half the night playing on the computer :) so I'd better get back to the socks. I do have school hours to knit through tomorrow and Friday, so I should be able to finish them, and the hat, too. I'm knitting a hat, as well; forgot about that. It's dark green 5ply, very nice color, with some fluffy silvery hearts. Nearly finished. I think.

Can't wait to see the woven scarf, I think it's going to be stunning.
