WIP WEDNESDAY: The curse of Edna Mode

So remember the capelet I was working on a fortnight ago?  Yeah, I kind of misread the pattern.  It only occurred to me that I needed to increase on both sides of the ribbed border after I had knit 20 rows.  I’d been jonesing for a few smaller projects and decided to put that away for a bit so I could knit up some gift yarn into a shawl.

This is Trillian, one of the Douglas Adams-inspired shawls that Martina Behm designed.  It’s easy enough to knit during conference calls and meetings, which is advantageous since I just took on some new responsibilities at my job.  I love how the yarn (Valley Yarns Charlemont in burgundy) knits up.  It has great drape and doesn’t pool excessively, and it has great stitch definition.

Me being me, however, I can’t help but make some mistakes.

I’m working with metal needles, which I don’t normally do because the stitches tend to fall off the needle if I stop in the middle of the row.  I thought I’d gotten all the stitches back on the needle in their correct condition, but, well…

I’m hoping to complete this within the next week or so, both because I’d like to work on something a skosh more challenging and because I want to have something new for FO Friday next week.  Stay tuned…
