KAL progress, Fugly Blanket update

So I started a KAL yesterday and I am loving it so far. It's a very basic shawl pattern that will end with an edging I have never attempted before and I am a little nervous about. Vickie Howell is leading us in her usual wonderful fashion though, so I am fairly confident I will get er done. I didn't get lots of time to work on it on Day 1, but here is my first days work.

The flash on my camera bleached the color out of the yarn, but you can see it's taking shape. Love working with this yarn and love the color so much! I took it with me to work today and knit on my lunch hour. Would have loved to just knit the day away.

And here is my Fugly Blanket. I am almost out of scraps and will soon have to dig into my stash of cotton yarn and start working whole skeins. Maybe I will make myself take only balls with labels torn off so I can have a really clean stash bin. I have this laying across my Queen sized bed and it covers most of the width of the bed and about two fifths the length. Not sure if I am going for a square or a rectangle. Guess I will know when I get there.

Because I am working on this KAL shawl I will have to put my crochet hook down for the next week until the KAL if finished. It saddens me but conversely I think my wrists can use the break.

Your kal project is really pretty and fugly isn't so fugly after all, it's looking pretty cool. (see what I did there, rhyming - go me!! LOL)

@Knitting NixOk - That made me actually laugh out loud! Go you indeed! I love my Fugly Blanket. It's pretty loud - but I love looking at all the different yarns and love seeing how they work up and look next to each other. It really makes me happy!

I intend to to take a long bubble bath and then lay in bed and work on my Kal shawl tonight. I need to make some progress! :) Such a rough life. ;)
