Happy Sunday! We made it through another week. Hopefully you have earned some much needed time with your needles or hooks, and have been able to squeeze in some yarn.
I have as you can see, cast on yet another project. Now here is the odd part, I have been addicted to knitting on only this shawl for a whole week. No desire to knit on the ever mounting pile of WIPs, just this shawl. Who am I?
Is it possible that this pattern is my kryptonite? The pattern that calms the beast that casts on all the things? Maybe it is a fluke. Have you ever had a pattern that has grabbed your attention like this?
Could it be the yarn, Quince & Co. Finch? Okay really last question...why is the color Peacock so hard to capture on camera? My monitor makes it look like a navy blue, yet in real life it is a rich dark teal or Peacock if you will.
Okay enough blabbing about the wonderful shawl, will you take a look at these sweet little treats. Lovely tea and adorable stitchmarkers from my friend Leigh. I treasure gifts that make me think of the person as I am knitting. You may have noticed that the turquoise one is adorning the WIP above. This was Leigh's way of thanking us for knitting along with her. How thoughtful! Speaking of KALs, My Sister's Knitter group on Ravelry will be starting a new KAL/CAL on June 15th.
As always I look forward to be inspired by the brilliant group. If I do say so myself, they are quite possibly the most fantastic people you will ever meet. You should join us, we are wicked fun.
I will leave you with this video that Mary in our group alerted me to. Enjoy!
Have the best day today!
