Sweaterday: Actually on Sweaterday!

So, as previously mentioned, after today, I will likely make very little progress on my Vivian. But I figured I’d show you where I am right now.

I’m about half way done with the body portion, before you get to the point where you put the body aside and start working on sleeves. I started picking up speed once I got a way into the decrease portion. Now I’ve got about 25 rows with very few stitches, and they’d probably go pretty quickly if I hadn’t been distracted by the Ravelympics.

I cast on last night for my first project, a Swallowtail Shawl, and hoo boy, it’s addictive.

I’m almost to the point that I can start adding the beads (instead of making nupps). I just sat and watched The Cutting Edge last night (I have no access to television at home, so I couldn’t actually watch the opening ceremonies) and started chugging away on the simple lace portion.

I found these pretty multi-colored beads to use in place of the nupps, and I CAN’T WAIT to get to that point.

Haven’t even started on the socks for the other Ravelympics team, but it’s okay. I imagine the shawl will be done fairly quickly and then I can devote all my attention to the socks, and maybe sneak a little for ole Vivian there.
