W.I.P. Wednesday

So many WIPs…..

The past week I have been working on some shawls….

No, it’s not a stingray…… it’s a shawl.

I am a huge fan of Outlander, I love listening to the audiobooks while I am knitting or crocheting. I was so excited when I found the Facebook group, Outlander Pattern Central. They have the best knit and crochet patterns from the T.V series.

This one should resemble Claire’s striped shawl from season 4.

A few weeks ago I was having a really strange dream, I can’t tell you what the dream was about because I have no clue. I can tell you that in the dream I was wearing a really cool looking shawl. After I woke up I started working on making a shawl like the one I was wearing in the dream. I finally figured it out.

I should be finished with it in a few more days. I only have 4 more rows to go and then I will need to put the finishing touches on. I think I will call this one the Summer dream shawl.

Yesterday I started on another shawl I am not sure what it will be when I am finished.
