today marks the beginning of another busy week for us! but it will be busy in a different way. my hubby has left for sea until friday, so there may be a bit of "adding lib" here. hah.
i'm so excited to have been wearing my pendulum heaps. it's fortunately been pretty windy here lately! so it's really quite perfect. and i love it like crazy. honestly, everyone should knit one. i'm pretty glad i decided not to try to make more stripes than the pattern called for. i think it's big enough as is, and i also would have run out of the darker yarn. so it all worked out!
here's a pic of it "in action"
i honestly love the drape. i did block it, and i'm loving that is still has that squishy garter love. total win! and i have to say, i think i'm pretty hooked on shawl knitting! my next shawl will be on the needles soon! (as soon as i figure out which one i'll be knitting next haha). my only big concern is how i'll store them all. i'm already running out of space (heaven forbid!) i'll have to remedy that. pronto.
as for the next one? hmmm i'm thinking something by either veera or martina. there are several shawls designed by both of them that are overpowering my queue and favourites :) i'm such a fan!
how about you? are you a shawl knitter? which patterns are your faves? how is your week looking like? i'd love to chat! xo
