On the Needles–November 2, 2012

After successfully finishing the Socktober Opal Challenge last month by knitting 3 pairs of socks using Opal Yarn,  See this post for all of the finished socks together.

I am now working on a nice big shawl as a test knit.  The shawl is called Superstar Shawl and is a cardigan style shawl which closes in the front with hook and eye closures and then uses snaps on the sides to create “arm holes”.  I’m using bright and fun yarn from Knit Picks and am loving the look so far.  I’m about halfway done and cannot wait to see the finished product!

Projects like this could almost get me into knitting more.... almost. I am still working on a shawl (read big wide long rectangular scarf) that I started LAST Thanskgiving. Nearing the end - but I don't know. I must be REALLY slow - or easily sidetracked!

Your shawl sounds like an interesting project. It will be fun to see the finished front.
