planning some spring projects
I am working on loving (and using) my stash so this morning I put these lovely yarns together for a spring shawlette. I have made this one before and it was fun to knit. My plan is for most of the shawl to be in the variagate pinks and then add a stripe of the green just before the final edging. Karen asked us to write about our knitting happiness. I learned to knit from my grandmothers but it wasn't until we started the prayer shawl group at church that I really loved knitting. And the last few years, I have worked on stretching my knitting skills. I am currently working on a vest but my fingers have been itching to knit a shawl so this will be a great project too. I wear a lot of black and grey so this would really add some color to my basic wardrobe.
As much as I love knitting, sewing and quilting also add much joy to my life. As I was winding the pink yarn this morning, I looked at my design wall and realized how much I am loving the little circle blocks and the scrappyness of my grey basket quilt. This morning I saw a picture in this post that has me itching to cut up all my scraps. I love the idea of having a bunch of squares ready to stitch.
Enjoy your Sunday!
