W.I.P. Cameo Shell Stitch Shawl in Progress
Here are a couple of shots of the Cameo Shell Stitch Shawl W.I.P. I got the pattern and yarn from my wonderful swapper, knitgal for Christmas. I have done the first set of shells (although that doesn't show that well in these pictures because it is all bunched up on needles still). I think I will have it finished some time this week and then I will post FO pictures for you to see.

Thanks once again to my kind and generous swapper for the fantastic project. I am enjoying knitting with the Caron Simply Soft. It is a marvelous colour and soooo soft.

I am looking forward to the binding off because it is an I-cord bind off, which I have never tried before.

P.S. Can anyone help me with something. Ever since my camera ran out of batteries during Christmas the date on the pictures has been wrong. Does anyone know how I can fix that? TIA for your help and thanks for looking.

Nice job, so far!

What kind of camera do you have?

Thank you both for your kind words. I am pleased with the shawl. It is coming along nicely and should be finished before the week is out, barring complications.

The camera is a Mercury CyberPix S-555V Slim, or so it says on the front of it.

Very pretty. I love Simply Soft. It is by far by favorite craft store yarn.

PROGRESS REPORT Only 8 rows of shell pattern and 6 rows of plain garter stitch, then the I-cord bind off and this shawl will be finished. I'll post a pic when it is finished. Then I can carry on with my first ever sox!!!

Can anyone tell me what sadistic son of a gun invented the I-cord bind off for a shawl that is well over three hundred stitches across? I have been binding off for an hour and a half now and I just now reached the half way mark.

I am DETERMINED that I am not going to bed until this shawl is finished. yawnnnnnnn.... I am NOT going to sleep until I finish this darned thing. I need to take a break for a few minutes, but I will NOT go to sleep, I will go walk around the apartment for a minute to get the kinks out of my neck and shoulders. I am NOT going to bed! I am GOING TO FINISH THIS TONIGHT, if it kills me!!!

OK 3/4 of the way done, time for a smoke break! I am NOT going to bed, just out front for a smoke. I'll be back to finish this up in a few minutes!!

I am not so sure I will be posting a picture of this tonight though. My eyes are crossing and I am going to be doing well just to finish it up. I think I will even wait to weave in my ends until tomorrow. I just want the binding off done tonight so that I can knit sox tomorrow, FOR ME!!!
