If your name is Caesar, beware today.
My new project is (surprise, surprise) a shawl, and as you could probably tell from the photo in my last blog post, it is knit from the bottom up.
There’s a lot going on in that photo — Lucy is inspecting my work and you can see a bit of my Loopy Ewe knitting bag.
I am using Alchemy Juniper in the “Topaz” colorway on a U.S. size 5 needle. I do love Alchemy Juniper. It’s a fingering weight yarn, but is on the fine side of fingering weight, so it behaves like a heavy laceweight. And it is so soft.
Knitting a shawl from the bottom up means you have some seriously long rows at the start. But the good news is that they keep getting shorter.
I am well into my second skein of Juniper here. Each skein is 232 yards, and I purchased three of them (from The Loopy Ewe). I’m not sure yet if I’ll have to crack open the third skein. The suspense is killing me!
She’d be on the edge of her seat but she’s too comfy to move.
