Daughter #1 is off at college. Daughter #2 has her first day of school today. It is time to get back to schedules – back to work. Enough basking in the sun!
without further ado, allow me to present a One Skein Wonder. Over the past three weeks I have knit five of these babies. Great pattern – great look. I bought the yarn at AC Moore —- it is some kind of cashmerino knock-off. With the daughters no longer under one roof, there is no sharing of the wardrobes – thus the frantic knitting of enough wonders to go around. By the way, Daughter #2 usually has much better posture than this photo would suggest!
I am also in the midst of knitting a Tsubasa Shrug. My dear, dear friend Claire snorted when she saw this pattern. She actually snorted! She thinks it will be highly unflattering. I told her I am channeling my inner Stevie Nicks. She has advised I avoid anything that uses the word butterfly. Now, no matter how it looks I must wear it as a point of pride. Here is it so far.
Still waiting to be finished: BWA Halcyon and Backyard Leaves. I am making a solemn vow, once the shrug is done, I will complete one of these projects before starting anything else!
