The shawl is slowly, plodding along. I have 6.5 of the 14 repeats of the pattern done, once I finish the 14 I can do the 7 decreases. It's a lovely shawl, but I don't think I thought this shawl thing through very well. They take a long time.
The sweater doesn't really have anything new going on, the rib is a bit boring so it's going slow.
I started another hat, I love stuff that knits up quick. :D
