I'm through the second pass on Chart 3. Fortunately, this shawl gets smaller as she goes. The color in this picture is pretty true to the yarn color. It's a gift for Helen. I'm a little late on it. Though I do try to get thru at least two rows a night....most nights I make it.
I am finally enjoying knitting Ene. I was having a hard time with the center stitch, but finally got a handle on how it works on the row. Since Ene is my 'brain' knitting, I do have another 'no-brain' knitting....something I can work on and talk or watch TV at the same time. It's 'Hunter.'
This is Rowan's 'Hunter' from the Rowan 'Summer Tweed Collection.'

Hunter is a very easy knit. I plan on making a few more over the years. When this is one is done, it should look like this:
Additionally, I'm finishing a sweater for my Godmother. She knit it and I'm sewing it together for her. It's slow going because I have to do it at the knit shop, Gail Knits...because I sometimes forget HOW I'm supposed to be doing a certain stitch. Gail is great and will always get me started right.
Don't have much time for knitting, but I sneak it in when I can. Other than that, the only other news is Luna is still perfect. But I guess that isn't news. ;-)
