I haven't made all that much progress on my Drakar socks. I've just finished the gusset and I'm moving onto the foot of the first sock. I've been distracted because I picked up a new project on top of the socks and it's hasn't going so well. *sigh*
I started the Supernatural MKAL (Mystery Knit-A-Long for anyone who's not up on the lingo) which kicked off with the season premier this week. I've been SUPER excited about it, counting down the days, selecting and buying yarn, petting said yarn in anticipation and now it's here. I picked out this SUPER cute yarn, a 100% merino lace weight in this brilliant green color that practically glows. Despite the basic pattern info calling for fingering, I decided I could make lace work and I found this on clearance. PERFECT. And it doesn't work.
Well, let's be fair. I've knit in lace weight approximately 2 times, I have never made a shawl in the round- I'm not even really a shawl person so I don't have much experience there to start with, so it really could be my inexperience that's giving me such a hard time.
And it worked.
