YOP Update November 27 or My Poor Little Neglected Blog

After a couple of very busy weeks, I finally can spend time with my blog again (and with everyone else’s)!  When I’m finished this post, I’m going to start catching up on all the reading I’ve missed out on.  I’ve got my coffee and I’m ready to go!  My knitting has been faring sightly better, as I have been squeezing in whatever time I can including my lunch breaks, work commute, and really any spare moment I can find.  This week has been filled with great success and stunning defeat.

Technically the Astrick shawl is complete.  So that’s a big YAY!!!!!  Unfortunately, to say that it’s not gift giving quality would be a little bit of an understatement.  That little shawl was cursed from the start, and stayed cursed the whole time I worked on it.

On the good news front, I have a second shawl cast on for my MIL, Blue Whale by Stephen West (I know , I’m predictable) and it’s going very well.  I have also had continued success  with my BFF’s Christmas present.  I was really hoping to be almost finished it by the end of the this weekend, but the addition of the Blue Whale into my knitting schedule has caused a little hiccup of sorts.  But I will get back to it soon.

So here’s the list.
