Progress Report :: Sleeping Beauty


Happy Monday Lovelies!!  I hope everyone had a fantastic and relaxing weekend.  I know I did!  And to all you wonderful mamas, soon-to-be mamas, grandmamas, and single dadas - happy belated Mother's Day!  I hope you were all spoiled rotten by your loved ones!  I had a splendid weekend that involved two knit nights, some much needed quality family time with the Munchkin and the Mister, a quick trip to the new Target, and a whole heck of a lot of knitting time thrown in.  Absolutely marvellous!  I definitely needed a weekend like that before starting up another hectic work week.

And since I got so much knitting done I thought 'hey, let's take a break from the FO train here and check up on one of the WIPs that's currently on my needles as a way to start the week'.  Yeah?  Especially because I'm über excited about the progress I've made on it.  Last night I finally broke down and weighed my ball of yarn for my Sleeping Beauty shawl (aka: the Viajante) and guess what?  I've hit a huge milestone:

Please excuse the dusty glass plate!

Isn't that exciting??  I'm so close to finishing this, I can feel it draped around my neck already!  I seriously cannot believe how fast this project is knitting up.  I honestly thought it would take me forever to finish it considering how the last time I had knit a shawl of this caliber (Nuvem) it had taken me half a year to knit up.  But hey, I'm not complaining!!  My hope of being able to wear this beauty this spring, and not next spring, will actually be a reality!  I think if I plan it right, if I manage my time properly, I think I can get this project off the needles by the end of the week!  Eek!!  I think my excitement alone will be enough to make this last bit knit up faster!

So with that said, before I start up my work week I think I'm going to try to sneak in a round.  I hope you all have a sunny and lovely Monday!

♥ Happy Knitting! ♥

  2. What? you're about to cast off? I'm inspired to cast on for my own Viajante once I hunt down a skein in a similar shade of zomg pink!
