Knit Along Progress Report

Hi Friends! Just a quick update on my Tops, Tanks and Tees Knit Along project. This is the last day for the knit along and I didn't quite finish in time. But, I really didn't expect to get as far as I did so I'm happy with my progress. 

For those of you who haven't seen my other posts, I am making Abalone with Lion Brand Cotton Ease yarn in Stone and Terracotta. I took this project to work on during our beach trip and worked on it a lot (yay for beach time!). Unfortunately when I got it home it smelled of crab SO BAD. I guess it was a bad idea to cook crab in such a tiny condo! Ha ha! So I had to let it air out for a few days before I could stand working on it again. I'm happy to report that it's now crab sent free.

And here is a picture of what it looks like right now. I have to finish grating the left shoulder seam and then knit the edgings. 

 First time using the Kitchener stitch. It's fun and I love the results. I think I pulled my stitches a tiny bit tight in a few places but I'll practice and get better. 

What have you all being working on?

Wow, it looks great. Sorry to hear about the crab aroma! Can't wait to see it completed. I have added it to my favourites

I know I've said it before but the color combo is to die for! Can't wait to see it all finished up.

Sorry to hear it acquired a crab smell. But I'm glad you've got it out! Did you have a little vacation at the shore?

It's looking so lovely! Isn't the kitchener stitch fun? :) I just used it for the first time (successfully anyway...I tried it before and it failed) I used it on the toe of my sock.
Bummer about the crab smell but it kind of made me giggle. Not sure why haha
Love you.
