In all its unwoven glory

It's the Crown Wools!


It's a big hunk of knitting--I have some leftovers from the four balls of sock yarn that I started with, but not a whole whole lot. It's about twice the length of a coffee table and this is a pretty big coffee table. So I'll take some time in the next week or so to weave in ends and then block it, and I'll show you it 'in the field' when I wear it out.

Here is a close up of the seed stitch border:

The Universal feeling seems to be that seed stitch is great but it would be even greater if someone else knit it for us. I didn't mind this because it was only ten or so rows. It does make a nice, kind of non-rolly finish although there's all kinds of rolling going on here.

I've got the Great British Baking Shawl in the works, and a holiday one I want to do, and you may have noticed I haven't had any tiny needle posts for a while so I need to start one of those too.

Hope your projects are all going well!
