Might Could Works

As every maker knows, small things can make a big difference.

Such is the case with the streamlined, pared down, low-key Might Could list I shared a few weeks ago. Since then, here's what I might did:

1. Seamed this vivid version of my Angletyn afghan:



2. Wove a few final ends on Alaris, the wrap-cape-shawl-ruana, and worked to get a slightly better picture:

3. Completed the components for a summery slip stitch afghan featuring rainbow colors. I'm weaving ends now, then it will be ready to assemble.


4. Started (yet) another afghan, which has seen some action since this photo, but which is mostly waiting patiently for its turn in the spotlight.


5. Drafted a design for something I desperately need, a light, fluid spring-summer shawl suitable for the cool mornings and evenings we're experiencing.

6. Finished writing several patterns, which will head to the tech editor soon.

Dazzling? No. Progress? Yes.

In fact, the results have been so satisfying, I'm developing an updated Might Could list, to see what other things this understated, loosey-goosey, weirdly motivating strategy might be able to manifest. If you haven't tried it, stroll over to the dark side and give it a lazy whirl.

Who knows what you might could do and might could make if you had a Might Could list of your own?

  1. Love the picture of the wrap-cape-shawl-ruana, it's gorgeous!

    That's an neat picture of seaming that afghan, I've never done a 3 needle seam.

    1. So glad you like the wrap-cape-shawl-ruana, thank you!

      The 3-needle method is one of my favorites and it's quite easy once you get the hang of it. I encourage you to try it the next time you need to seam something.

  4. Well done. I'd be interested seeing how your shawl works out. I am venturing back in to the world of knitting again and have been wanting a light shawl that is simple but lovely at the same time. The problem I am finding is that I am a plus size and don't know how to resize a pattern to make sure it covers my shoulders and arms adequately. I actually want something that can cross over at the front, any suggestions?

    1. Welcome, Therese, glad to hear you're getting back into knitting.

      There are so many lovely shawl patterns, but I'm forced to sheepishly admit, the only ones I've made are my own designs. Dojeling is simple, can easily be made larger by knitting a few extra rows, and can be worn with the wings crossed over the front. (I like that look, too, and wear mine that way sometimes.)

      Hope that helps!

    1. Thank you and you're right, progress of any sort needs to be relished. (It's easy to forget, isn't it?)
