Kimani and Greencastle

YarnCon was great! I also had a good visit with my daughter Meredith and her family before heading back to Nashville. I always try to fit in a couple days to see them whenever I am in Chicago, since they are less than an hour east of there.

It’s a bit tricky to get photos of these two busy babies but I managed a couple halfway decent ones. LOL!

So after I got home I finished the Kimani shawl I had been working on and got it blocked yesterday, just in time for The Fiber Event. I am leaving in the morning for that and will be driving home Easter Sunday.

Before I get to the final glamour shot of Kimani, here’s how much yarn was left after the bind off. Yep 6 grams. Pretty close but at least I used most of the two skeins right?

Next to the little ball is the yarn for my new project. It’s a DK weight design by Dee O’Keefe called Debussy. It’s one of my favorite shapes to make lately, a tip to tip triangle. I am using my Classic Merino DK in Sea Oat.

Finally here’s the finished shawl and I am very pleased with it. I am going to close for now to help Jerry in the shop for a bit before we head out for a concert tonight. Never a dull moment!


Honeydew Lace Square

I don’t have too much time today for blogging but I did want to announce that I have the pattern for the Honeydew Lace Square available for purchase on my website and on Ravelry.

It was quite an adventure to design, knit, and write, and I hope anyone else who decides to take the dive will have fun with it. You can purchase the Classic Merino Lace on my website if you are so inclined. :-)

I am excited to be returning to Greencastle, IN tomorrow for The Fiber Event. It has been quite a few years since the last time I was able to vend there and the weather looked like it may even be warm, so that is something to look forward to also.  I will update you on my current knitting projects in my next post. I have got some packing to do. :-)
