Fortunately summer is long in coming to Eugene, so in the coolness of the morning I can model my latest knitting project, the Cedar Leaf Shawlette that I started at the Black Sheep Gathering a couple of weeks ago.
It was a relaxing and easy knit for me, with yards and yards of stockinette stitch and some garter stitch, too. The bind off was a lovely scalloped leaf lace design. My greatest challenge was finding a large enough pin-able area to block the piece. I resorted to taping together cardboard pieces to my work table.
Then came lots and lots of pins. My make-shift blocking table worked great.
I love wearing it as a scarf, wrapped around a couple of times with the ends dangling in front.
Here I am dreaming of knitting it in a lavender colored handspun that I made. The yarn has been waiting in the wings for a while since it was not enough to make into a sweater. It will be enough for this pattern. So happy to have found the perfect project for it.
Find a creative spot — that is my wish for you today ~ Karen
