I've been knitting on two shawls the past few weeks. The first is a Kristy Comfort Wrap (pattern on COLORJOY.COM ) .The second is my own weird version of a Clapotis (available on knitty.com) with the yarn and stitch-twist changed to reflect my idea of a mermaid's tail, rather than the rather too hard-edged (for my taste) clapotis pattern as written. They are both gifts, and I hope to ship them out on Monday, done.
Writing update: I did 1000 words above the daily goal yesterday, and in my first session today, I wrote all but 100 of the daily goal. I will have a second session in a few hours.
