Back on track

First.. we must give the Cat his due...
He's been moping, and I think it's because I haven't posted his picture since Friday. The injustice of it all...

And... after I finished posting, I turned my attention to getting the shawl design right. Normally, I don't swatch... for anything. But, desperate times call for desperate measures...
 After modifying my chart, I grabbed a handy ball of scrap yarn and knit a wee swatch. It's much easier than knitting on the actual garment and having to rip it out. Not to mention, the Fluffy Cat, while lovely, is not built for frogging.

But, I was pleased with my swatched, so I went back to the shawl itself.
I managed to get a repeat and a half done before bed. It's not exactly what I originally envisioned, but I'm quite pleased with it. It should knit up fair quick now... though I do need to get back to that blanket...
