Good morning! How are you? Well surprisingly, we are back into cold temperatures and I'm not complaining. This past weekend was too hot for me. So once more, I'm wearing some wool apparel and am at peace with that fact. Summer is around the corner and there will be plenty of time to be hot.
For today's knitting, I'm sharing with you a shawl I casted on a week or so ago. Nestled in that squishy garter stitch are lots of yarn overs that will not be visible until I block the daylights out of the shawl. Seriously the instructions say this is so and I'm trusting the directions. Blocking usually does wonders to any lace shawl. The pattern is repetitive and easy to memorize and I'm happy to have this in my knitting tote bag.
I am confident (??) that I will be sharing with you my never ending blanket that is on the LAST skein. Stay tuned.
What are you working on this week?
I'll have to trust you when you say you knit some yarnovers! And knitting the last skein of a blanket is cause for celebration.ReplyDelete
I love your shawl yarn! Gorgeous, I can't wait to see that grow!ReplyDelete
Your shawl yarn is beautiful and I clicked on the pattern - can't wait to see yours after you block it!! Congrats on the last skein for the blanket. They (blankets) can be a slog at times, I know.ReplyDelete
Wow that shawl pattern is lovely. I always see so many lovely shawl patterns which I would love to knit but then wonder if I would ever wear them....ReplyDelete
Love the colors of the yarn you are using for your shawl Karen! I’m thinking about casting on another shawl.ReplyDelete
Hiw exciting to be on the last skein for the blanket. Once that shawl is blocked it is going to be fabulous. Such a pretty colorway you have chosen.ReplyDelete
What pretty colors in the shawl. I look forward to see those yarn overs opened up with blocking. I have knit patterns by that designer and enjoyed them. On you go through that last skein of blanket yarn. I'm working on my mostly handspun prairie shawl and a sock.ReplyDelete
It is pretty colours, I look forward to seeing it finished. I'm still working on my blanket, so nothing new at the moment. CxReplyDelete
I've been working on catching up this week! Going away was lovely, but - at heart - I much prefer being home! reading blogs is one thing I missed while I was gone and I've enjoyed catching up ... I do hope spring is finding its way to you - you need a good long season to enjoy before it becomes too hot for wool :-) Love the colors in that shawl! (and Happy Easter!)ReplyDelete
I haven't been knitting lately; I wanted to take a short break because my tendonitis was slowly acting up. You've reminded me there will be some good blocking weather here and I need to block my sweater.ReplyDelete
