on my needles


garter stitch shawl

A couple weeks ago I ripped several projects. It was surprisingly cathartic.
I wanted to knit something simple and fairly quick. I spent hours some time on Ravelry looking at easy/beginner shawls, but couldn’t find a pattern that my Dyslexic brain wouldn’t screw up.
Then I found a couple that I liked… this one and this one, but didn’t have enough yarn.
I especially love the look of the 2nd one and really want to try it…just need to buy the yarn.

I decided to cast on 3 stitches with Vintage Rose on size 8 circs and knit my heart out with garter stitch.
I’m happy with the way it’s turning out and can’t wait to see it finished. It’s so soft and silky. I love that I can pick this up and knit it anywhere without figuring where I left off.

A shawl is perfect for the spring weather I’m demanding to arrive soon. I’m over this 60-70 degrees one day and 30 the next.

Still reading A Life In Stitches and LOVING it. I have one problem with this book – every single time I start reading she makes me want to knit!
