I love how this is turning out!
I lost!! I ran out of the Exploding Peacock yarn with about 9 garter ridges of the last wedge left. After consulting my knitting group, I decided to finish it in the blue (wavy edge color).
Hi friends, I’ve been quiet in this space lately (sometimes wordpress acts up on my phone, which is where I prefer to blog), but there has been some knitting, some vacationing, some coursework, and lots of baby steps toward starting work in a few weeks.
I’m currently knitting three shawls at the same time, which is unheard of for me, but there is a good reason for each of them; 1) because I really want a neutral gray shawl, 2) because of Colorpalooza, and 3) because it’s a Don’t Panic Mystery Shawl Knitalong and I find it hard to resist Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy-themed knits!!!
It’s been a while since I’ve had a bear sighting, but today I was alerted to this guy! Thorin Bear has been spotted in Africa with his new owner!
My 98th bear is done! Meet U.N.I.T.
I’ve also started a Doodler shawl for a more challenging Colorpalooza project:
And the week ended with us getting really excited about homemade baguettes! The first batch came out so well that my husband whipped up another batch of dough while the kids and I were out this afternoon. The Wee Boy hugged me in gratitude for this bread! How much more highly can I recommmend the recipe?? 😂. It’s from the book The Homemade Vegan Pantry, which I’ve found to be a really excellent resource.
I hope you’ve had a good week, too! ❤️
