WIP Wednesday---Update on My Near FO's

After the mini-disaster I had last weekend, I repaired and re-blocked my Magic Shawl. I've renamed it as my Maui shawl since I knit the bulk of it there so it will always remind me of vacation:

It's a simple and a fast knit shawl(even in Cpurl time)

Brook's Farm Acero:

Here's my Capitan hat with the wonky brim that I need to rip and re-do. Those of you who have knit one, do you think it would benefit from a light interfacing? I'm using Cascade baby alpaca so the knitted fabric doesn't have any body.

I want to finish another shawl and some Fiber Trend clogs for the Seasocks cruise but before I can do those, I have THIS deadline:

A baby shower! Did I mention she's having twins?

I didn't want to knit another Mason Dixon baby kimono's so the KTPT Knit group helped me pick out a new baby project. (Mostly me asking J, "Would you put S (her son) in this?") I picked the baby pullover from Knitting Pure & Simple in Dream in Color Classy "Beach Fog". OK, no more blogging, must knit on!!

Is your brim too floppy? From that picture I can't tell--you look so cute in it!

You could always put a piece of interfacing in there and see how it feels before you stitch it closed.

I think both look great! I LOVE the shawl and the color!

Ooohh, the shawl is gorgeous. And it's so great to have a knit that will always take you right back to a wonderful vacation.

The brim doesn't look too floppy at all (IMHO). I just finished mine last night and am debating whether it is too small - maybe I'm just not used to wearing hats!

The shawl is very pretty and I love the baby blue yarn for the shower gift :-) Have you tried the Baby Surprise Jacket - it is cute and pretty easy/quick to knit.

The hat looks great on this end.

The shawl and baby sweater are continuing that beautiful blue! That shawl wil be a great memory of your trip.

Your Maui shawl is so pretty! Such a gorgeous, deep ocean blue. And El Capitan looks fab on you!

The shawl is pretty. I love when simple patterns come out looking so complicated.

Sooooo jealous that you're going to Sea Socks.

Look at those FRECKLES!!! what a cutie. And I notice the freckles because how is it that I have so many more wrinkles than you...

Countdown to Sea Socks! Woohoo!

The hat looks adorable! You and Rowan can definately be twins with your matching Capitans! I kinda went either way on the interfacing...on you and sis it looks great...me it looked wonky, Snowboarder is "particular" and would definately want interfacing (and a slightly guy version I guess).

How pretty is the shawl! Love it! And I love that baby sweater...but in Classy...perfect!!!

LOVE the shawl. It's gorgeous! I won't touch the brim of the Capitan. It looks great to me. I think adding interfacing would make it look wonky. Leaving it out allows the brim to curve naturally with the hat.

hehee... That's the same day as MY baby shower, and I"m knitting like crazy to get my Mommy Snug done so I can wear it. :) Crazy? yes. Glad I"m in good company. :)

I love the Maui Shawl. it's as blue was the water! I'm glad you got it done.

Good luck making the baby gifts!

The shawl came out very nice Cpurl!

Happy Easter!!
