Thank you for your warm and generous comments on my 8 years of blogging. As spring continues, I can promise more garden updates and photos. Smith has been working hard and good things are happening.
I actually have some knitting to show, but while looking through my Ravelry Notebook I realized everything I'm knitting, as well as almost everything I've finished, is a shade of red. hmmmm What's up with all the red? Red is one of my favorite colors, but at first glance you'd think it's the only color I can see.
Who can have anything bad to say about the lovely "Tart" Pashmina and the even more beautiful Red Peas? Once I understood the rythm of knitting each rows, and the reason for the construct, everything fell into place. The shawl is nearly finished, only 2 sections left to do. It's going to be a warm and elegant wrap.
If I show a half finished shawl 5 times does that make me boring? Seeing the process of a project is the what I love about knit blogging. However, I'm not sure there is much to tell about Luciole. The real story is Kim's yarn, the beautiful New England Red from Woolen Rabbit. She's nearing the end, too. I have a way of knitting slowly along and then ending up with a little flurry of finished items, which just may be the case with my red shawls.
Do not be swayed by all this red, as my number one favorite color is still blue. Sadly, my only blue(ish) project is the Sky Skarf, which means I'm spending a lot of time looking up at the sky. I will not bore you with yet another pictures of the blue, blue sky (which has been amazing the last few days!), but there will be Sky Skarf news later.
The next two projects have been planned and there will be no change in color. I am seeing red, and that's all there is to it.
Psst...there is still a chance to win prizes if you comment on yesterday's post!
