Weekend everyone! Yes!
How are things?
I’m currently kicking off my weekend with a sweet glass of Moscato and breaking in a new FO: Blissful.
Just when I was thinking my love affair with the knitted leaf motif was over (and, I must say, it is so over for me for the most part) this shawl gave me a little glimmer of a spark for my love of this motif. I think this shawl pattern has a modern look to it, due to the clean lines. And it is so different, yet simple at the same time. I think that’s what drew me in.
This is my first time knitting with Loft. I was a little unsure while knitting, but after blocking is when I really felt the WOW factor. It lives up to its name, lofty, airy, warm, comforting. It’s awesome. In fact, I think my next shawl will also be made with Loft.
Can you imagine my horror as I realized I was going to run out of yarn on the bind off row? I had to brainstorm. Buying another skein was just something I was too stubborn to do. I prayed I had kept my leftovers from my Snöflinga, and I had! I used the worsted weight to bind off. I don’t think muggles will notice.
So many photos! Can you tell I love this one? ;)
TWO more FOs on the way, so excited!
Have a great weekend. It’s spring break here for my kids and we’re going to enjoy a little extra time together, I’m working less, and planning on getting more knitting time than usual.
See you soon!
