7 Small Shawls: T - 221 days and counting down.
Amusement on a rainy day.
I know. For someone who professes not to like knitting with pink yarn, I've certainly had a lot of it on my blog lately, haven't I?! This one is for a secret project due yesterday, or maybe even last week. The yarn is from Scout. I think it's super pretty. :)
As promised, here is my progress so far on the second shawl in my 7 Small Shawls ebook.
I'm really liking the way this looks, which makes me wonder whether I should re-think the overall shawl.
The original concept is somewhat tailored, but I'm really loving the top with its leafy-ness, so I'm leaning toward more leaves. I'm re-thinking this one while dreaming up a chart for #3. There will be more sketching and some swatching going on in the near future.
On a personal note, I purchased a cemetery plot for my aunt, uncle and mother today. They'll be together under oak trees. I think they would have liked that.
Tomorrow I am contemplating building an ark if the rain doesn't stop soon. :glug:
