Mostly, I've been a monogamous knitter, working solely on my <a href="http://www.ravelry.com/projects/supertinks/wingspan">Wingspan</a>.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://images4.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/176573309/image_medium2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="300" src="http://images4.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/176573309/image_medium2.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I've completed two whole triangles and started a third! I made sure to weigh my yarn after the first triangle, so I know it takes roughly 10g of this yarn on these needles. That means I might be able to squeeze an additional triangle out of it and make the shawl a bit bigger.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I have discovered something though, When I cast on for the second triangle, I used a cable cast on and then just knit normally into the stitches. It's left me with quite a loose cast on edge for those stitches. With triangle number three, I used the same cast on, but knit into the back loop for the new stitches, which has left me with a much neater, tighter edge.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/176573310/image_medium2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="300" src="http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/176573310/image_medium2.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I will do the rest of the triangles the same way, and leave the loose edge as a "design feature". I doubt anyone apart from me will notice it anyway, once I'm wearing it!</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Yesterday, I also picked up <a href="http://www.ravelry.com/projects/supertinks/dragonfly-wings">Dragonfly Wings</a> again, dug out my 5mm needles and started the lace border. So far, I've knit two row of it! I appeared to be one stitch out, so I have fudged it a little near the centre and I'm sure it won't make a difference when I'm done. Another "design feature"!</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">In other good news, while tidying the house for a visit from the in-laws yesterday, I found my missing DPN in the sofa. Which means work can start again on my socks.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Not likely to get much knitting done this week though, as I have a lot of studying to do before I go away for a course on the 12th. I think Wingspan and the socks will make very good projects to take with me to keep me entertained each evening when I'm sat in my hotel room all by myself!</div><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Q5cxxEXY_Vg/Udf3_SWNL0I/AAAAAAAABh0/mib6iapl89U/s1600/crochetbyconroy1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="160" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Q5cxxEXY_Vg/Udf3_SWNL0I/AAAAAAAABh0/mib6iapl89U/s640/crochetbyconroy1.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><br /><div style="text-align: justify;">I've actually managed a fair bit of progress this week!
