WIP Wednesday + Yarn Along | June 10

I've been enjoying sharing pictures of my current knitting projects every Wednesday. Plus it's fun to link up with Ginny's Yarn Along and see what everyone else is working on.

It's finals week (of my last quarter of my first year of grad school) for me, so this post is going to be quite short. I have a couple of lose ends to tie up before I'm truly free!

Anyway, I've been plugging away on my Melodia shawl. It needs to be completed this Sunday with a picture posted to be eligible for the prize, a gift certificate to my LYS. I only have 2 rows and the bind off so I'm feeling confident. Right now it's bunched up on the needles so it's hard to photograph its true size and shape.

I've also been enjoying knitting my Tales from the Isle of Purbeck MKAL shawl. On Monday I finished clue 3 and clue 4 was just released...literally 10ish minutes ago. I'm excited to finish my work and get started on the last clue. Again, it's hard to photograph the shawl in a meaningful way while it's still on the needles.

Last week I purchased a wooden shawl pin to wear with the finished shawl. It's a simple bulb headed shawl pin, but I love it!

A couple of nights ago I knit a few rounds on a long-on-the-needles pair of Hermione's Everyday Socks. I'm hoping to finish those up soon and start a pair of Rose City Rollers. Although, I hear the next KAL at my LYS might be socks!
