Twice a month I meet three other ladies for some knitting and socializing. This past weekend as I was enjoying the company of one other knitter, I casted on this shawl. The yarn has been in my basket for quite some time. Shamefully I think it might be two years or so. I have loved it but never came up with a project for it. So while I was looking around Ravelry, I stumbled across this shawl pattern and thought it would be perfect for this yarn. The older I get, the more I appreciate garter stitch and the main body of this shawl has it. The edging is classic feather and fan stitch. My daughter thinks the color resembles a mermaid's tail, I do not see it, do you?
My romantic thoughts of standing at the tennis match yesterday in sunshine were thwarted by clouds, wind and intermittent rain. I did however enjoyed the warm temperatures and watching a good tennis match. It continues to rain today which will make it the perfect day for knitting inside.
