Look! I have reached some blue in my Kauni!
That’s the fun of this yarn and what makes me keep knitting — looking forward to the next color change.
And because it has color changes, I am keeping the lace pattern for this pretty simple.
And because the lace pattern is pretty simple, I’ll be offering this shawl pattern as a freebie when I’ve finished it.
The Unraveled Librarian commented on yesterday’s post:
Somehow, it’s always so reassuring to see such an experienced knitter using counters and stitch markers.
Yep, I’m using stitch markers and a row counter. While I don’t really need them, I find it so much easier to have them, particularly since I am dragging this shawl along as my commuter knitting. I’m working from a chart and have the current row marked on the chart using magnetic strips on a board. But it is possible to move the strip when shoving said pattern into the knitting bag, so it’s nice to have the row counter as a back-up, so I can easily find my place.
It’s all about the easy, ya know?
I got something really pretty in the mail last week:
This is laceweight yarn from Catskill Merino Sheep Farm. It is 4 skeins of their Undyed Saxon Merino — 2-ply, 2 ounces and 260 yards each. It is almost a fingering weight (which lately is my favorite kind of laceweight to use) and is just lovely. I discovered this yarn through Knitters’ Review — the sportweight was profiled a couple of weeks ago here.
This card was in my box of yarn:
“Yes, I am spoiled. So what?”
