I don't care what the Tall Guy says (he's in shorts), I'm cold (I have my electric throw on).
This happens every year, I wait for the cooler weather (read as not 90 and 100 degrees), it comes AND then I decide I really want a nice shawl to wrap my body in. Rather than be proactive, I wait til the chill is in the air and then decide I need one. Sox are helping a bit for the feet.
I almost cast on one last night, but I've been really trying lately to be focused on my knitting, knitting on a just a couple of things at a time. But, this morning, I don't think I will wait.
Oh I have plenty of shawls that I could knit with plenty of yarn...
My Stonington hasn't progressed any further than this.
Bridget Rorem's If I Could Fly
Carol's Favorite Shawl, the Pi Shawl, well I could just go on forever. One that I have had on the needles before is the The Scallop Shawl from It is always an Adventure in Knitting. Knit 4 Together has this shawl and when I get a bit chilled out there, I help myself to it. I think it is quite doable and I have this great Frog Tree Alpaca that is just right and might I say bought for it several years ago. It could be a semi-quick, pleasing shawl to knit this week.
Next time though, I think I'll start in the Summer for my Fall knitting, what a novel idea!
