Works in progress: just as written

We thought we'd share some of the details of our current works in progress with you in a week long series.  Each post will cover a different kind of project experience.  Today, we have a project that is coming along beautifully and next week we'll share two projects that have been re-invented for success.As we take a look at all of these projects we can't help but feel lucky to have found a craft that allows us to create such beautiful things.  When the projects are so much fun that they seem to knit themselves, all the better!  And today we have one of those to share with you.Theresa cast on for her Joker and the Thief shawl several weeks ago in order to master the cross hatch stitch for her demonstration last month.  She quickly mastered that part of the pattern and got to a point last week that she thought was worth sharing.joker-wipAs you can see, she has made some great progress and is really enjoying the project.  Melanie Berg's pattern is well written and easy to follow.  And the colors that Theresa chose are flowing together beautifully.  She's finding it hard to put this project down because she's getting so much pleasure from watching the colors play off one another.It's easy to keep knitting when you can't wait to see what develops next!We'll be able to share finished photos with you in no time at the rate she's going.  In the meantime, if you'd like to try your hand at knitting a Joker and the Thief shawl like this one, we have a few kits remaining in stock and we'd love to help you get cast on.  Pop into the shop or give us a call at 970-407-1461!
