In Knitting
I finished knitting the Silk Moon Crescent Shawlette I mentioned last month. I think it turned out really well! Very easy, very fun to knit. They would make wonderful gifts, don’t you agree?

I’m not much of a *shawl person*, so this no-frills style suits me well. I’m often chilly and never go anywhere without some kind of scarf or cardigan, even in the summer. Over air conditioning kills me! I chose to make the shawlette (small) version of the style…just enough to cover the shoulders. I used stash yarn (see former post for links) so this was basically free, right?

As soon as the first one was off my needles I unearthed up more stash yarn to make another. I don’t even know what the yarns I used are, but the black has little beads mixed in. You know, for evening, dahling.

So what to knit next? I recently bookmarked the Albers Cowl by Ann Weaver. It looks very quilt block-ish, only knitted, of course. I kind of like the idea of knitting quilt motifs.

Do you knit in the summer? What’s on your needles?

    Oh that’s something that I think i’d actually tackle!! I’m ALWAYS cold in summer/air-conditioned rooms (basically everywhere we go!). My DD is the same so I’m getting her used to carrying a sweater like I do.

    Gosh that’s cute! But, I’d have to make it into a blanket…ha! (When I’m cold, I’m COLD!) It reminds me of one my great-grandmother crocheted for me when I was little.
