The Last Day of Summer

It's the last day of Summer!  How can that be?  There are so many things I wanted to accomplish during our Summer of Shawls.  I did have some fun, showing  off just some of the shawls that I love on my You Tube Channel pjknits

There are so many more things I wanted to talk about on the subject of shawls, so Shawl and Tell will be a regular segment in the next year on pjknits.

Later this week, I am going to cap off Summer of Shawls on the podcast with some shawls from my favorite designer and her book lanFolk Shawls that is obviously one of my favorites!  And we will chat about what is coming up this Fall.

In the meantime, here are the show notes from Episode 30 Fun Shawls - Have a great Knitting Week!

What's On The Needles This Week?

I have to admit, I really want to get these things done, so I can have some fun with my knitting!  But, until then, knit, knit, knit.

A super simple garter scarf for the 40 Months Project, out of my leftovers of YOTH Father in Concord Grape.  This is going to be such a long, generic scarf!


This is probably going to be the oddest scarf in the bunch.  The yarn is tied together as you see it.  That is the way it came.  And yes, some are skinnier than others and there is a chenille one that is going to stick out.  But, I am going with it and hoping, an artsy lovin person will like it!


This yarn is so soft!  I just wish I would have started knitting with it before it was discontinued by Cascade!  It has some acrylic in it, but it is a dream to knit with - Cash Vero.
