Sweater Progress and Hitchhiker

  In my opinion, Valentine's Day is not the best, most important (or awesome) holiday in the calendar but it certainly is a festive, silly, and fun day. After receiving and snacking on chocolate bars, hershey kisses, cookies, and gummies, I am left with a full stomach and ambition to write out an interesting, photo filled post!  I have some progress on my sweater to share, as well as a WIP that I have been keeping secret.

So far my sweater is looking fabulous, and I can't wait to wear it!  I've knit a total of 10.5 inches, and I'm finished with the side increases.  Here is my progress on my Owls Sweater!!

Not much to say about my sweater but I am sort of addicted to knitting this!  I think it's turning out well with not a mistake or super ugly stitch in sight.  Hopefully I can finish it by the end of February which is my personal deadline.

And, here is my Hitchhiker shawl!  The colors are so bright and bold, yet calm like ocean waves.  I can't wait to wear this one as it isn't a a girly, lacy shawl.  Hitchhiker seems to be a bit less feminine then most shawls and shawlettes I have seen on ravelry.

That's all for today's WIPs, and hopefully I will have some FOs to share on Friday!!


  1. Hi Emily,
    Such yummy yarn and cute pattern for your sweater; it's easy to see how you could get addicted to knitting this! I really like the hitchhiker shawl and hope that someday I will be able to also knit one...you are such an inspiration!

    1. Thank you so much Corinne! Your comment made me smile from ear to ear, I'm looking forward to seeing you for our next knitting session! How's your hat coming along? :)

  2. I abandoned the Swirl Hat....have gone back to the Rosalie Hat. Am making good progress, with only 3" to go before starting to decrease! Also working on a pillow with the Caron Yarn.

  3. Oh ok! I can't wait to see your progress.

  4. OMG!! that looks so awesome!! Great job, Emily!!
