Fall Foliage- A Scale Would Have Been Really Useful

Look at all this leftover yarn!  :(  I played it safe and stopped at 62 stitches.  I could have increased SO much more. Maybe a good soak and block will give me a bit more length?  Maybe?  Live, learn…and hopefully invest in a good kitchen scale before my next shawl.

Now what to do with the leftover yarn?

Fall Foliage Shawl- Almost There

I hadn’t knit in 4 days and was feeling rather sad about it, so when both girls napped AT THE SAME TIME this afternoon…  :)

I decided to stop Spring Cleaning my kitchen.  I plopped down on the sofa with my knitting and put the first episode of Great Expectations (BBC 2011) on Netflix.  I love, love, love Dickens’ writing and so far, I’m loving this adaptation.

Onto the knitting.

I started and finished the last short row section of my beautiful little shawlette.

I am still loving this pattern.  She lays everything out so clearly that I haven’t had one moment of hesitation while knitting it.  It’s wonderful when a designer doesn’t make you guess or assume.

And now I’m off to finish dinner.  If all things work in my favor (unlike last night), Ella will go to bed at a decent hour and let me begin the second decrease section…
