Yarn Along

I feel like I have been knitting on the same shawl for weeks.  Oh wait, yeah, it has been a couple of weeks.  My goal was to finish Color Affection by the end of the Olympics.  I came real close, but with our unexpected trip to the Cape and a lot of other outdoor activities, I fell a bit short on the knitting time.  This summer I have found myself more "on the go" which means I have less time to just sit.  And that's perfectly fine by me.  Physically I feel better this way, and if it takes me a little longer to accomplish my knitting and spinning, so be it.  And best of all, we have been having a blast.

So onto Yarn Along.  I probably have about 15 rows left before I start the edging.  It's so hard to see because you can't really stretch it out.
I am still so in love with those colors.
And yes, the only reading I have really done lately is magazines.  I got Mother Earth last week at the bookstore.  Did I ever mention how much I love the bookstore?  I could spend hours....

So what are you knitting these days?

I know what you mean - I've been knitting that Sugared Violets (mums!) shawl for forever, it seems. I'm almost done with the stockinette section and I can't wait.

I'm knitting a Color Affection too! Isn't it such a relaxing pattern? Yours is lovely, btw.

I really love your yarn! I may have to try one of these shawls. I'm not really sure if I'm a shawl person, but maybe it's time to find out!

Thanks for stopping by the World of Wiedz. I love the colors of your yarns! Beautiful. I bet the shawl will be gorgeous when it's done!

It's a sign of a well spent summer, I think, if you are enjoying yourself too much to knit!
