|This is Woobu by BMFA. Bamboo gives this yarn a glorious sheen. Why, yes, that is miles of garter stitch. Again.|
A few minutes ago, I went and purchased some contraband for the movies tonight. How can I not see Dark Shadows on opening day? To go with Mr. Depp and the coffee tonight at the theater, there will be Godiva chocolate liqueur. Yum.
However, having tired myself out a bit, I hope I don't fall asleep during the show.
Worried about knitting yet another shawl in garter stitch, I threw caution to the wind and cast on Cameo anyway. I'd been waiting all week for the contrast yarn to come in the mail and once it did, I was out of excuses. Wingspan was in garter stitch, too, but with all of that short row shaping, it was entertaining enough. This new project has a lot going for it: it's knit on the bias, there is a picot edge, there will be stripes and to put a little icing on the cake, there will be lace. The pattern page I linked is to the particular shawl I liked the most. I thought it was beautiful. Hoping for a more substantial shawl, I'm using meatier yarn and bigger needles. Woobu is sport weight.
Lastly, I have a confession to make. I may have violated my "no politics" policy and listened to the news. Having such a strong aversion to bullies, how could I not? One thing you cannot teach is empathy. You either have it or you don't. Think about it.
