This Weeks Progress aka WIP Wednesday.

I've been really pleased with the progress of the Shawl of My Own Invention I'm loving the way the colours are coming out.  The bright green is seriously bright!  I'm sorted too with the pattern now so I think this will just be a case of knitting away until it is done.  Saying that though each row is over 200 stitches at this point so, as I'm not the fastest knitter, it takes a while to get through a row so I'm tending to only pick it up now when I've got a decent stretch of knitting time.

I've not got any pictures of progress from the Blue Bamboo (at least it's got a name now) as although I loved my swatch my swatch did not love either of the patterns I had in mind for it.  I had cast on (264 stitches) and I knit 6 rows during the Royal Wedding before deciding it wasn't working out.  My fabric was just too dense and was eating up the yarn and I knew I would never have enough to finish the top.  So I am back to swatching again, this time on bigger needles.  Fingers crossed eh?
