Good afternoon. Did you have lunch? Our crew just did – sandwiches on Boudin sourdough.
So upon review, it seems I’ve hyperspaced from week 5 to week 15. As mentioned before, while I was on a blogging break, I had finished Edginess (teased back here). Finally this morning I was able to tackle the long process of wet-blocking. One hundred and ninety-one pins were used to pin this baby down onto my Knit Picks blocking mats (
five six used). Each blocking mat is about 12″ x 12″. The wingspan of my shawl is long so I used at least four across. I used two of their blocking wires to make the top edge straight.
It’s supposed to be about 80° this Sunday so I have my FO out in the backyard. Them next door cats and those crazy squirrels betta stay away from it.
So what’s my next project?
Well, have you heard of Jen Joyce? I found her via her blog which probably had been recommended on WordPress. Jen is a sweetheart and a fellow Californian. She lives in this lovely home of wonderful wood, has a beautiful GSD named Emma, and she always has her beautiful nieces model her designs in the Napa area.
Jen had generously gifted me with one of her designs: Altitude Cowl. I love the Feather and Fan stitch pattern. It’s like comfort knitting to me so I’ve named my project, Feather to the Fan.
This is the yarn I’m going to use for it. I have had this yarn in my stash for ages. I think I had maybe ordered it from WEBS? I’ve decided to use all three colors – Dove, Snowy Owl, & Midnight – to make my cowl tricolored. I’ll be able to wear it with anything since these are neutrals. Hmmm…I think I will probably just do blocks of color instead of striping and most likely keep this order of color.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. TTYL.
