Well, these projects are all done. yeah. wahoo.
This shawl has in fact been done for awhile...I guess I've been having too much fun this summer? to get it posted. Or maybe it's the four children all together all the time that makes my time not seem quite like my own.
Either way it's done, and it's July so it will be folded and put away for a bit.
This is a lovely pattern. Quite easy and required very little concentration which seemed to be one of the main reasons I enjoyed it so much.
The yarn was a gift for the holidays last year. It's lovely and fluffy and so nice to knit with. That may have added a lot to this project. I can't say I'm a variegated yarn user very often or a super wash yarn owner for that matter but this yarn was worth it!
Plus, this colorway reminded me of a running river or stream, hence the name. Don't you think so?
I know I'll enjoy having a bit of summer wrapped about my shoulders as the fall and winter set in.
Remembering the running streams and rivers that are so predominate now.
Remembering how I love the feel of wool when the temperature drops.
Remembering that now I get to think of new projects to knit...maybe even things for the holidays.
Here's to the summer craziness, joy and no schedules. Maybe even forgetting what day of the week it is. Yes, that seems like summer the most.
What sounds the most like summer to you?
