WIP Wednesday – On My Needles

Right now I have a couple of fun things on my needles.  First is my Love of Spiders shawl, which is from a pattern by Melanie Berg, using custom dyed Sunshine Yarns Luxury Sock … all in fun kits from Little Skein in the Big Wool. I am absolutely obsessed with this shawl and how deceptively easy the slipped stitch pattern is.

Even though this is not a difficult shawl, I do have to refer to the pattern and pay attention to what I’m doing.  When I’m on the go or don’t feel like concentrating, I’ve been working on my Garter Goodness, which is another shawl by westknits.

GG First Color 1

This is a simple garter stitch pattern with yarn over increases separating the sections.  The real fun in this shawl is adding color after color and seeing how well they play together.  It is also absolutely HUGE.

It’s nice to have a project to suit every mood!

Raveling here and here.
