Knitting News




I started a new project yesterday that is for me.  I have officially left the pink phase of knitting and am back to my kind of colors.  This yellow reminds me of golden wheat fields and sunshine.  I'm trying my best to not wish away summer and stay in the moment.  

My future daughter in law picked out the lace weight wool for her wedding shawl and I'm excited to start that project.  The yarn should arrive over the weekend.  She loved my citron shawl, I'm super lucky I get to knit that pattern again.  

Sometime this week I need to do a deep stash dive into my yarns for my nephew's baby to be.  Wedding knitting and baby knitting together is a double blessing.

What are you working on this week?

  1. That's a lovely color! And wedding and baby knitting... so much fun!
    I'm still working on getting my knitting mojo back. I started a hat. That should do the trick...

  3. So exciting to be starting two new projects. Have fun.

    For me? It's going to be a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I am hoping to cast on a sweater some time this week.

  5. The Juliet shawl is really gorgeous.
    I think it's sweet that the bride wants her future MIL to knit for her!

  16. That looks like a pretty thick laceweight and it's a great color. I can't believe we are about mid-July now. Summer is rolling by fast. Can't wait to see what your future DIL picked out.

  17. Knitters are so fortunate that we can celebrate the big and small events in life with knitting projects. That yarn does look like wheat fields. The shawl is going to be another pretty one. Great summer knitting. I am knitting a little Christmas tree mitten ornament for Norah. I made them for her brothers three years ago.
