Maybe I should say garter stitch with a slip, as in Kirsten's Ulmus Shawl. The two by two rows of color keep the knitting from becoming mundane and the slip stitch pattern is easy to read- a good project when one is distracted (in a good way) by grrlfriends. One must always have "chat friendly" knitting at hand. This beauty has been a welcome distraction from the ropey quality of Summer Tweed, too. Ruth's beautiful yarns, Bluefaced Bliss (pink) and Essential Merino (blackberry) are a balm for sore fingers and tired arms.
In the stash is more BB in Sunwashed Silver. The minute I saw this colorway I knew it would make a fabulous Andromeda Shawl, which is anticipated to be next on my needles. HOWEVER, Miriam has just published a fabulous new stole, the Nefertiti Wrap and now I'm torn. Must do a stash dive for something suitable. So much lace, so little time!
