Cable Knit shawl pattern

I have finally determined how much yarn one would need for my cable knit shawl pattern. The pattern is updated and submitted to the LoomClass. Mark something off the to-do-list!

As I was knitting the shawl, however, I got bored with the stitch. I hauled out my copy of Anne Bipes' Loom Knitting Stitches, Vol. 1 and turned the shawl into a stitch sampler! I have made it through Vol. 1 and am halfway through Vol. 2. Vol. 3 includes cable stitches, but is much more interesting than what I used.

Once this sampler shawl is done, it'll probably be about 14 miles long. That'll be long enough.

I have also tackled some mending. I figured when the kids' clothes need mending, if I wait long enough, they will outgrow the item and therefore, not need the clothes mended. BUT when my clothes need mending, well, I gotta get a move on it!

Not yet. I'm thinking it'll be two weeks in June. Denise is holder of the calendar.

Thanks for checking my blog.
