Sunday I will be attending a birthday party for my Grandma – 80! – and I already bought an outfit to match this unfinished shawl that I plan to wear. I have made good progress since starting on Friday, but those darn rows just keep getting longer and longer! Wish me luck!
The pattern is Different Lines (I bought this pattern with the amazing Stripe Study Shawl – came out to about $8 USD after conversion). The yarn is Harrisville Designs New England Shetland that I got as part of a Vivian Hoxbro kit at a yarn store in Columbia, SC years ago. The kit was for the pattern Dancing Stripes. I knew I probably wouldn’t knit that pattern, but the yarn and colors were amazing – and amazingly priced at 75% off. I’ve been saving the yarn for just the right pattern, and so far I’m loving the Different Lines pattern in this shetland yarn. As with all woolen spun yarns, I am anticipating the transformation once it’s blocked. It will soften up a lot, and be lightweight but warm and cozy. I can’t wait. Now back to the knitting! Must finish!
