It will continue to be quiet around here as there is little to no knitting taking place. School is in full swing and it’s pretty busy! However, I have been wearing this:
almost exclusively over the past weeks – especially in the mornings when it’s chilly. I blocked it after this photo but it was more like washing it and laying it out to dry! I started this when we went to Toronto in July but ran out of yarn. Thankfully an LYS had just received stock for the fall and I finished it right away. I knit it on 5.5mm circulars out of Berroco Ultra Alpaca in one of the new colours: Gneiss (no. 6223). Very perfect. In terms of the size – when I can I will post photos that show it worn – I added an extra 16 rows of St st and 5 rows of the textured stitch before starting the garter. It’s more of a wrap than a shawl in size – quite large. And perfect. Will post photos asap.
