Michelle shawl

Gotta throw in a little knitting content every now and then. Here’s the Michelle shawl pattern in throw-over-the-shoulder mode, just rinsed and dried so far; it will hold those endpoints crisply once I give it a real blocking.  I did it in 800 g of sock yarn from  Creatively Dyed Yarns.  Started it last Thursday, finished it Tuesday.

Meantime, Knitpicks has “Wrapped in Comfort” on sale along with all their books; Amazon has upped the price; and Martingale, the publisher, is officially sold out.

Speedy! I am, however, not surprised. It really looks good in that color. I sure am glad I got my book before they were all gone.

Officially sold out,huh? Glad I got my copy a while back! I’m sure this means only good things for the future, and btw, the shawl looks stunning, too.

Sold out, huh. So when will they print the second run? BTW, you look good — both generally speaking, and in that color.

Fun –

I knew something was missing from my day: I hadn’t been here yet! *sigh*

Thank you for sharing the picture. Lovely smile!

I looked back at a ball of yarn that is a shawl from a previous post. It gives me confidence because my shawl, when left to rest between knittings, looks about the same. To me, it means I am on the right track. 🙂

Well, from here it looks as if you were “in the pink”. Too skinny though, need more chocolate!
