my ravellenics project – triangle shawl

This month has been incredibly busy, but I haven’t been at a loss for knitting projects. I’ve spent a lot of time knitting. The month kicked off with a knitting get together during the opening ceremonies of the 2012 summer Olympic games, where I started the colorful triangle shawl to the left. My friend Eve invited members of her local knitting group to watch the opening ceremonies and kick-off the ravellenic games – knitters and crocheters starting projects that would be finished by the completion of the closing ceremonies.

I had such a great time hanging out, knitting with these ladies. Many of which had begun an intricate lace shawl – the Rock Island. It’s a gorgeous triangle shawl, but a little too complex for me at this point. So I made another basic triangle shawl, that’s simple yet pretty (and when I wore it to work, quite warm). Many of the knitters finished their projects.

I finished mine too and wore it to work that week.

This shawl is an extremely basic lace pattern, which has driven me to begin to work with more complicated patterns (yet still simple). My next project is a little more complicated, but still a relatively simple pattern.

My friend Christine ¬†and her husband are moving. Christine and I did our yoga teacher training together and connected over yoga and accounting. I’m in the midst of working on a pair of diamond lace yoga knee socks for her (22 rows and a seam left to finish the pair) and immediately when they are finished, I will be making a pair for myself, I’m loving them so much. (I’ll post more about this pattern, once I finish my pair.)

It’s been a busy month and as I start moving into gift making season, there will be lots more activity in this knitting corner. I love my knitting creative playtime and am excited to find more time for it.

What projects are you working on these days?
