Reyna #2

I liked the pattern so much I made another one. Yarn is Knitpicks Stroll Handpainted again, the colorway is Hayride. In both shawls I knitted stockinette stitch between the mesh parts instead of garter stitch because my garter stitch turned out a little tight and made the shawl look wonky.

Summer Knitting

This is one of four knitting projects I finished recently. They are all done in thin wool yarns and need to be blocked. The pattern for this shawl is Reyna and it can be found on Ravelry. The yarn is Knit Picks Stroll Handpainted, colorway Tree Fort. It is soft and squishy and lovely to work with.

A New Blanket

With the help of Mr. Moose I was able to finally finish my Gretchen Afghan. The colors in the picture are a little off but I am very pleased with how it turned out.

Knitting and Baking

Last weekend I baked a Lemon Crumb Cake, which was delicious and I finished the Blarney Stone Cowl, a fun and easy knit.

I know my little blog has become rather quiet this year but there is really not much going on around here. We are all well, the house is still standing, the car is still running and there is plenty of yarn to keep me busy. I did not plant a garden this year, so no veggie pictures and I spend most of my time in my room, knitting away and watching movies or listening to audio books. I still cook and bake but usually I forget to take pictures. I'll pop in whenever one of my many projects gets finished and when the kitties allow me to take pictures of them.
