Playing with Yarn

Hello, Stitchy Friends!

Summer vacation is in its second third week already. Amazing how quickly time is flying by. We’ve been busy making bottle rockets, reading great books, and mostly doing just a whole lot of nothing. Sadly, that also means I haven’t been stitching much. My mojo has waned as the heat has grown.

But, even school holidays demand at least a tiny bit of a schedule. So, when the little man is working on some worksheets (gotta prevent the summer knowledge leak!), I settle down with my lovely shawl project.

Edlothia Shawl, designed by Jasmin Räsänen

I haven’t made much progress since the last time I shared, but it is still moving along. As before, the pattern is Edlothia, designed by Jasmin Räsänen and available for free on Ravelry.

Meandering Socks, designed by Dana Gervais for Knit Picks

My other little project is Meandering Socks, designed by Dana Gervais for Knit Picks. It is part of their Artful Arches pattern book. Every pattern in the book is designed to look good with hand-painted or stripey yarn. I’m using Lana Grossa Meilenweit Solo Cotone Print in colourway 4002, which is a beautiful tonal purple. Unfortunately, I’m stuck on the heel of this darn sock. It is a modified Feegle, which I love, but I keep losing count! The heat has melted my brain!

More stitching and other good stuff is coming soon, I promise. Until then, keep cool (or warm).

    What a lovely shawl! It’s going to be truly beautiful once finished. Good luck with the schedule and getting some time to do some crafting over the next few months!

  4. The shawl will look delightful. I’m sure the sock will soon be brought to heel (pun intended – I couldn’t resist!)
