Phew, made it through another very dark and damp mid January week. It’s weekend everyone aaand I have a week off now. And if that wasn’t good enough let me tell you that I will go on winter vacation for a whole wonderful week. We’re taking a trip to Tirol in Austria where we’ll hopefully find a winter wonder land.
After finishing the Lucia Hoodie (which will accompany me on my trip for sure) I started a new project. First I wanted to knit a no fuss triangular shawl. Then I rediscovered the Kelpie pattern by Brooklyn Tweed wich I bought four years ago (f-o-u-r, is it really that long ago???). Back then I knitted this beautiful hap shawl for my mother as a birthday present (to be seen here at ravelry). I liked it so much that I always wanted to knit another one for myself. All yarn I needed could be found at home so there is extra statisfaction in using up my stash.
The center triangle, only pleasant garter stitch, was a really quick knit and I completed it last Sunday. Weeknights I worked bit by bit the lace border with it’s beautiful alternating stripes of color. Tomorrow will be lots of driving and maybe I will complete it even still in the car (must think of a new small knitting project for my vacation). I will keep you up to date. Hope everyone has a great weekend.
