Hoarfrost is done. I love how it turned out. It is beautiful and smooshy, just as a shawl should be.
It was impossible to get good pictures of. Please excuse the child who refuses to wear pants.
This shawl was a delight to make. This is my second Andrea Mowry worsted weight shawl and probably not my last.
A dear friend’s father passed away earlier this week, so this shawl went to her. I wanted to give her a wooly hug that she can wrap herself in.
My shawl is blocked. I love how it turned out. It is huge, which will make it nice and toasty this winter.
Side note – did you know that you can sing “I’m a Shawl Blocker” to the same tune as the late 80s jingle “I’m a Wheel Watcher“? Good luck ever blocking a shawl again without singing that to yourself.
I had so much fun knitting this shawl. I love that I was able to use yarn from my stash (mostly leftover from Mary-Claire’s wrap) to complete this shawl. I kind of hope someone asks for this for Christmas next year so I can make it again.
Another side note – I might add photography to Audrey’s preschool home school curriculum so I can have someone else take pictures of me in my knitting.
Have a great week!
Greetings from Iowa, the land that reelected a white supremacist yesterday. I am appalled with the results of that race. I am thankful that the three other house seats in Iowa went to candidates that embrace diversity.
I’ve been stress knitting (and eating) over the election this week. I’m on the last repeat of the Nightshift shawl. I love this pattern. It’s pretty mindless knitting, but it is incredibly beautiful. It is fun to knit and it will be fun to wear. When I saw the pattern I knew that I had to make it. I would not be surprised if I make another one to give away. It is so much fun to knit I would like to make it twice.
I hope you got some good knitting in this week!
