It is so nice to be able to sit outside ! Most of the year, for us anyway, its just not possible. Too hot.
But right now, the temps are ranging from 17C at night up to 30C daytime. Sometimes a wee bit cooler, which means that while the kids build and run and play, I can sit outside and knit ! And look up at the beautiful blue skies and dream. Let my mind be clear and my thoughts wander where they will. Often a plane to pass overhead or a wedge-tailed Eagle in flight. But on this day, when I looked up, I saw .... a wolf !
And pictured below ... my very first Wollmeise lace project !
I did have an oopsey just in the beginning, which set my rows all off by one stitch.
Nevermind that ! I tend to appreciate what is right instead of what is wrong, especially with
a first time lace shawl . Lace knitting isn't all that easy, and I am patting myself onthe back for giving this
a go ! :)
The yarn is as divine as I knew it would be , and I am in my first mystery knit-along.
It is fun to get a small 'clue' each week, and to knit this shawl without a picture of the finished product.
It 's the Thru the Loops Mystery KAL here on ravelry which I am doing with my pal.
Clue 3 to be released tomorrow !! We should see some intricate lacework next I imagine ...
I wish a very happy day to you all !
