I've been on a knitting roll now that school is out for summer.
I have had less running around and work is manageable right now, so the needles have been clicking away. I finished up the Clockwork Shawl. I chose this pattern to knit for the Arrow Acres Summer KAL. I'm running the knit-a-long and thought it would be fun to participate. The rules were to knit something "summery" which basically meant anything that is not a heavy sweater or gigantic woolen blanket. Shawls, socks, etc...
I knitted this shawl using yarn from Marigold Jen. I purchased it at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival this year.
We had a few cool days and I actually got to wear it a bit with a t-shirt. Love how light it is!
I also decided to be a little more prepared with my Christmas gift knitting this year.
So I casted on another Samen shawl.
I'm calling this my Noah's Ark shawl. The shawl is a combination of yarns held two together throughout. All yarn was from my stash and the list of fibers is long!
This shawl contains:
Alpaca sock yarn by Cascade
hand dyed alpaca yarn (dyed by Liz)
merino MadelinTosh dk
Anzula squishy merion/silk
Shibui pebble merino/silk
Fiber mill yarn: silk, baby camel, yak
Now i have to block it and put it away until Christmas. Hopefully I'll remember where I put it!
I'm reading The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty. It's a surprising book because it's nothing like I had expected. I'm just about done and curious to see how it ends.
Joining in with Ginny again this week for the yarn along!
