Boring Progress Pictures

Today is not the best day to get decent pictures. It looks like we've got a bit of a storm about to hit, so it's dark out... really dark out. So I had to do my photo shoot under very unnatural light.

First up: The Landscape Shawl. I figure I'm almost 1/3 done (going by how much yardage I've used compared to what the pattern calls for)

I've hit the point where I can't spread it over the length of my needles. I'm hoping I can keep the shawl on the 24" needles, but I'm guessing I'm going to eventually have to move it to 36".

The other project is the Scoop du Jour. I'm still plugging along on the first sleeve:

I needed to shorten the sleeves from the written pattern (ya, like that's a surprise) and I decided to just take it out of the ribbing. I wasn't real keep on the long ribbing on the sleeves anyway. 4" seems just fine to me and made for an easy shortening technique.

So the pictures are bad, but the knitting is going at a nice clip.

Today's plans include a quick grocery run (which I hate to do in the rain) and if it's not raining, I'll go with Matt to his training ride tonight to get some pictures.

Maybe I'll try to get that first sleeve done on Scoop?
Happy Knitting!

Dark here too...no pool today - bah! Even worse for me than going to the store in the rain is having to take the children with me which has to happen today. Good knitting to you today!

Okay, there's no way I would want to have to go grocery shopping in the rain with 3 kids and expecting. I don't envy you that chore!!! I ended up not going, btw. I'll have to go today.
