My current work in progress:

Geiger by Norah Gaughan, knit from Wollmeise Merino DK in the “Schwefel” colorway, using 3.25mm and 3.75mm needles.

In Between

I am between insane cowl designs, and I thought something relatively quick and easy would be fun. This:

This is a simple shawl of my own design, knit in a DK weight merino gradient.

The yarn is Violet Lynx Dyeworks Pearl 250. You can find Violet Lynx Dyeworks on Etsy.

I love her gradients!

In other news, here is my third set of squares in my Martin Storey Afghan KAK.

I’m working on the 4th set now.

Loki and I agree:

We do not like turning the clocks ahead an hour!


  1. Aaaaawwwwww! Loki looks worn out already. Love the shawl and those gradients are just gorgeous. Really set it off. The squares look fabulous, too!

  2. Denise Wessman says:

    Love your shawl design. It really shows off the gradient yarn. Loki looks like I feel today.

  3. I’m with you, Loki! It takes me at least a week to adjust to the spring time change. Nap on!

    I heard a great song about Grandpa Jones regarding playing with daylight…and neither of us are “fer it”.

  5. Robin F. says:

    I’m always looking for patterns that show off my gradient yarns. Love your blocks for the Martin Storey afghan. I’m behind on that.

  6. I agree with Loki!! Ugh.
    Such a lovely shawl too. Where can I get the pattern? I have a skein of handspun that might be lovely with this pattern.

  7. Love the gradient shawl! I hope you will post that pattern;O)) I am so with you Loki – still not adjusted to the time change!

  8. Michelle says:

    Looks to me like Loki was just practicing for national napping day! The shawl is gorgeous.

  9. I love those Picasso socks. And also the Laundress sweater. Thanks for the contest, Wendy. They are always fun.
