My current work in progress:

1. Drachenfels, designed by Melanie Berg, knit from Madelintosh Pashmina in the Black Walnut, Seasalt, and Mineral colorways on a 4 mm (U.S. size 6) needle.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

Our Modern Stonehenge

Mid-afternoon on Saturday we were in my livingroom, watching tv and playing with Lucy. Suddenly it became incredibly bright with sunlight, so bright that we could not look out the window.

As the brightness faded a bit, Ian took this photo:

That’s the reflection of the sun on a metal pyramid atop a building. This is what it looked like a bit later:

Odd, eh? I’ve never seen that particular phenomenon occur before, and I don’t remember the metal pyramid being there. Perhaps some modern-day sun-worshippers erected it?

I worked a bit on my Vårblommor shawl, finished the body of it, and embarked on miles of edging:

Did I mention that there will be miles of edging?

I wanted something very light and lacy for the edging because the shawl is knit from such a light, delicate-looking yarn. I think this edging will be perfect!

I’ve sort of made it up — I based it on an edging I found in a book (and of course can’t remember which one) and made a few mods.

Lucy prefers not to think about it , just to settle down to a nap.

  1. Lucy, you’re one gorgeous cat!

  2. Nice! And my mum wants you to know that she is jealous of Lucy and may catnap her.

  3. You know, I didn’t realize that a cat could look sexy :) The shawl is looking lovely. Here you are finishing a second shawl and I’m still on Inky Dinky, and will be for ages. I need more knitting time.

  4. Wendy, you are amazing! God has gifted you with such a talent. I can’t believe how fast you knit thru these shawls!! Amazing!

  5. You know, Wendy, that metal pyramid was put there, no doubt, to shine the way to the Wendyknits followers. Just follow the light!
    Or something…
    haha!

  6. That does look like a perfect edging for the shawl!

  7. Lovely edging you’ve got to knit for the next 500 miles.

  8. And centuries from now, some cultural archeologist will speculate, “Yes, these primitive people obviously built all these odd structures to coincide with the evening sunset. What other reason would they have had?”
    MEM

  9. What a beautiful picture of Lucy with her blue eyes which match her kitty pi. Also, Ian’s pictures are great as well.

  10. Love the way the shawl is turning out.
    And my mom’s house cat Jojo says hi to Lucy.

  11. The shawl edge looks beautiful. Did you say MILES of edging? I wasn’t sure.

    I’m sure Lucy needed a nap from all of the playing. You might have infringed on her 30-hours-a-day napping!
