One step forward

For a while it seemed like my knitting was taking two steps back every time I thought I was making progress. Mostly my own fault of course. But finally, I’m getting somewhere.

I decided on Black Cherry for my Follow your Arrow 2 shawl. I did clue 1A and 2B and then saw 3A and thought it I’d really like it with 2A. So I tore back 2B and tried again. I’ve spent all week working on clue 3A (the smocking takes forever!) and yesterday started on 4A finally. I’m nearly caught up!

And I’ve also been working on these little socks. When the first one was half done, I decided it should be a bit bigger. As in wider. Time to start over again. I’m supposedly working on these between arrow clues, but the shawl has taken all my knitting time.

I’m not even entirely sure I have enough yarn for these. They could end up with a contrast cuff yet 🙂  These are for the little boy, who is also very much one step forward two steps back at the moment. We’re potty training. All my patience is shot. But whenever I got him to try on his socks he tells me ‘keep knitting mummy’. I guess I have to follow directions, he is in control around here.
