Sand and Stone Shawl


I finished my citron shawl!  On Saturday night I was casting off about a billion stitches and was concerned about the amount of yarn that was left.  I was left with about 18 inches of wool....that was a close one.


Yesterday I had troubles photographing the shawl.  For one, it was a dismal dark day, so I have to go from room to room trying to find scraps of light.  Secondly, lace weight is hard to photograph because of how see through it is.



I've tucked this shawl away for the fall weather since spring is trying it's very best to arrive and stay.

What are you working on this week?

  8. So pretty!!!!! As I have said before, like the lacy bubbles, left behind, when the sea recedes, from a wave.

    and please may I say, I appreciate your photos, showing life-lived in a home. Things of living, on the table. Jackets hung on the banister. LIFE LIVED!!!! Yes!!!! Thank you!!!!!! I tire of the "perfect little spots," shown, so many times. In blogs and on IG.

    Gentle hugs,
    🌸💛🌷💛🌸

  9. Your Citron is beautiful!!! Don't you adore that pattern. I also made one during the quarantine (does that surprise you...since we seem to often knit the same thing!!!!) I sort of freaked out with some old fixation sock yarn and made 4 pairs of the same short footie-socks. I need to find a more gentle rhythm to my shutdown activities!!!
    Glad to see your smiling face!!! Stay well my friend! Knit on.

  11. Well!! That wqas a very close game of yarn chicken. Glad you won. The shawl is gorgeous. I always have a difficult time photographing my finishes. Of course, I only use my phone, so there is that. But light (or lack thereof) is so telling. I've been busy work-wise which is just amazing/unreal/etc. Early on in this pandemic when working form home I had so much free time...which I got used to...now I'm busy and it is interfering with what I want to do - LOL. I'll get over it...eventually...

  13. Stunning, it is so beautiful Karen. I must admit to been a little envious of your skill, the lace knitting is so amazing.

  14. Whew! Great finish with the yarn chicken but what a very pretty shawl. I think it would be nice for Spring wearing - so soft and delicate. I'm working on my gray sweater. Good thing I love the yarn and the color and the pattern. Half-way down the first sleeve. It's a race to finish before the heat and humidity.
