Weekly progress

Since finishing the Brother socks, I've worked quite a bit on my other WiPs.

First up is Candy.

I added another inch-and-a-half of stockinette to the upper part of the body, including the bust darts and waist shaping (bust dart is on the right, waist shaping on the left). I have no idea if the bust darts are going to work the way I envision them, but they sure look cool anyway. I have another 4 inches of stockinette before I can start on the sleeves.

Also, I started the Charlotte's Web shawl. Woohoo! Koigu!

I'm going on a business trip at the end of February, and I thought this shawl would be the perfect thing to liven up my otherwise dark and dull business attire (black pants/grey sweater, grey pants/black blouse). So I have until the last week of February to finish. I think I can do it.

Still haven't started the second Rotating Rib sock. It'll have to wait until I'm finished with the shawl.

I think you and trillian have inspired me to start a Charlotte's Web -- maybe I will wait until you are done to reap all your wisdom!
