Unraveled: Southwell and Brambling

Happy Wednesday friends!

It’s been awhile since¬†I’ve talked about what I’m actually working on, huh?

I’ve¬†divided for arms on my Southwell Cardi — woo hoo!

My first ball of yarn is almost all knit up. ¬†I’m thinking when I finish it, I might go ahead and work the sleeves to get them out of the way – we’ll see!

And I’ve been enjoying knitting along on my Brambling Shawl, this month’s project for A Year of Techniques:

This month’s technique is intarsia, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised to find that it’s gone swimmingly. ¬†The pattern¬†does require a certain degree of attention — that combined with the¬†multiple colors involved has¬†meant that I can¬†only work on this when I have¬†enough time to sit down and spread out. ¬†I probably won’t¬†finish this by the end of April, but no matter … I’m excited to wear this airy shawl (knit out of Quince and Co Piper) whenever it gets finished.

With not much knitting going on around here, you know I haven’t managed to read much either … I’m still chipping away at (and really enjoying)¬†The Underground Railroad – maybe I’ll have it finished by next week! ¬†Linking up with As Kat Knits Unraveled this week!

What are you working on?
