7 Small Shawls: T - 103 days and counting down.
Today was perfect knitting weather. It was slightly drizzly, but gently warm. I listened to my ebook and swatched and knit. Knit and swatched, while the Bear played with his friend - here for a sleep-over. #1 Son was even on good behavior and made blueberry pancakes! It was a fine day, with some pin making toward the end, and a little bit of diversion. We're great Brother Cadfael fans and were watching a couple of episodes this evening after The Return of the Jedi (original of course - the kids had to see it).
Instead of swatching on my shawl in progress as I usually do, I broke with tradition and used a different yarn and beads.
This is the "First Blush" colorway from the The Royale Hare in Rockpile Sock (named after the local appellation). Isn't it a lovely color? The stitch pattern will be part of shawl #4 in my 7 Small Shawls ebook subscription. I combined and refined to come up with just the right look! Getting excited about this one. :)
