Knitting News


I'm enchanted with the true colors shawl.  I find myself sitting down and knitting, getting lost in a sea of thoughts -- just one more row -- just one more color -- Everyone should have a knitting project that becomes an obsession!  I will be sad when this knit is finished.

I have been thinking of casting on another one though...


The clover leaf shawl is my pick up and go knitting project.  The bag is tiny and portable and fits in my handbag.  I have the pattern memorized and can quickly see where I am so I can knit away.  I love having a lace knitting project in the summer months, light and airy in my lap.  This one is a great knit that I'm enjoying.


I'm currently reading The Chilbury Ladies' Choir and The Beautiful Mystery.  Both are great reads!

  6. Your first book I have on my TBR; its summary sounds like a good one. I really love your second shawl. I love the soft colors and how soft the yarn looks. I just want to bury my face in it and rub my cheek against it.
    You are not tardy in birthday wishes b/c technically, Jellybean's birthday is the 11th. Sometimes families take off early from school to travel overseas. I plan to make her her favorite gourmet mac 'n cheese Monday, a Barefoot Contessa recipe and I may make carrot cake. We'll see about that.

  8. That True Colors are beautiful. I can understand why you want to keep on knitting. I would love to make it but I find that I just don't use shawls.

  9. Those "just one color, just one row" knit projects are my favorite kind! But, I really love the colorway of your clover shawl. Both projects are lovely. Thank you for the book recommendations. I'm going to check them out. I'm reading The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry, which was the winner of all kinds of awards in England. I'm only about a hundred pages into it, but so far so good. Have a beautiful day, Karen. ♥
