Passiflora Shawl


I finished my second hitchhiker shawl over the weekend and I'm quite pleased with the results.  I decided to knit 45 teeth sections which required me to dig through my stash and unearth some purple sock yarn to achieve my goal.  There is something soothing in knitting garter stitch and making each row longer and longer.


I'll be saving this finished knit for the fall to wear.  The yarn was a Christmas gift from a friend and I loved the colors that were throughout the skein. 

I started reading A Reliable Wife a few days ago and the reviews are iffy on Goodreads.  However, whenever a book description includes the word 'gothic', I am roped in because in my youth I read nothing but gothic romance novels. So far I am enjoying it.

  1. That is a lovely Hitchhiker and I especially like the little stripes and then the block of color. Well done, you!

  2. Love the yarn for that Hitchhiker. Hitchhiker is such a great pattern for when you want to knit, but not stress your brain too much or watch a tv show.

  9. That's a great shawl! I'm knitting a garter stitch shawl too. Comfort knitting. So good for times like this. The books sounds like a relaxing read too.

  14. Your shawl is lovely! I read A Reliable Wife years ago and really enjoyed it. Like you, I love gothic novels. ☺️ I just finished The Most Fun We Ever Had, a family saga. It is lengthy but I enjoyed it, I always like novels that explore family dynamics.

  16. That hitchhiker is so very pretty. I love the way you added the solid color on the edge. It sets it off as special. I'm knitting on a Sunshine Coast sweater - in gray - what irony except I like gray and a shawl. I have a baby hat waiting in the wings.

  17. All of you who do garter just amaze me! Honestly. I really wanted to finish the baby blanket today, but here it is 10 fifteen and I wanted to connect with you all on your blogs. Tomorrow, I will add a pocket to the blanket! I think that will be a fine finish!
