|Schlock with gun - April 19th|
I know that right now he is looking a little funny considering I have been working on one colour at a time. By working this way it means that some of the shading looks extremely funny but that won't be for long. I did get quite a bit done and that is even after I (well my husband helped) frogged one colour that I had completed last week. Of course when do I discover the issue but only after I had finished all the sections requiring the one colour.

I guess being stressed and trying to stitch really don't go together too well and that proved it. I was able to get all the areas restitched and even got a bit more accomplished so that did make me feel a little better.
Now as for the princess I decided that if I wanted to get it completed quickly I would be better to be doing it on 18th aida so I restarted it this week. I am hoping that this piece will hang in a little girl's bedroom once it is done so figured it would also be a little bigger as well.

As I was knitting I was thinking about another shawl pattern that I had and wanted to figure out what colour I would make the next shawl out of. I got it down to three colours that I had and they were indigo, rose and light blue. I kept looking at the three colours and I couldn't decided especially between the two blues which one I wanted to use for the shawl. Now this is where the problem begins.

The yarn of course isn't in a skein but a hank so once we got home from our other running around I got the wool winder out and we set out to at least get one of the hanks wound so that I could start the shawl on Saturday.
The good news is I started the shawl on Saturday and have been making some really good progress on it already. The bad news is I didn't take a picture of the shawl yet so that is going to have to wait until I get the camera and the shawl in the same location. The yarn in the picture is the yarn that I am using for the shawl and I am loving how it is turning out so far.
Well it is Monday morning and I have a lot of work that I need to get done today so I better get working on it.
