We interrupt your regularly scheduled Knitting Olympics progress update with a much more interesting update photo:
I'm almost to the end of the first chart on Frost Flowers, and I just have to say that it's a lot more fun to knit than Little Rivers. Is that blasphemy against Herself? If it is, I don't care! I really love this shawl! Here's a detail shot, the best I could do trying to stretch the shawl out:
I switched to circulars the second I could (well, actually, I switched before I should have, but a little stretching never hurt a shawl) and now it's moving along much faster.
As for Little Rivers, it looks pretty much exactly how it looked in the last photo, but it's over 11" long now. Still beautiful, yes. But I can tell you right now, if it weren't for this whole Olympic thing, I probably would never ever finish it . . .
More tomorrow, I got the new Interweave Knits today! Great issue, but it deserves its own post.
