I am very proud of the progress I have made on the smokinskip scarf! Though, I still don't think I'm going to finish it before scarf-wearing weather is gone :( The picture below is slightly out of date, because yesterday I managed to finish the second s and half of the second k. Just 2.5 letters to go!
I also got some crocheting done. I saw this pin on pinterest about how to crochet a rose and I thought that would be the perfect adornment to the wine tote I recently finished crocheting. I'll do an FO post soon, but here is a sneak peak of the rose:
Finally, as promised, I practiced continental-style knitting! I did it for about half an hour on Saturday, then probably 15 minutes on Sunday and Monday. I definitely think I have the knit stitch down, it's the purl stitch that is driving me mad. I can do it, but it is slow-going and it just feels sloppy. Also, I have virtually no tension in my purl stitches, which is problematic. I guess all I can do is to keep practicing! I think it will be a long time before I get my tension even enough that I can actually make a project continental-style, but I'm sure I'll get there.
