With long winters here in Northeast Ohio, getting outdoors is important for physical and mental well-being! My daughter and I packed up some soup for a picnic in the park. We grabbed the camera and my only two finished knitting objects of the season!
I won this lovely handspun yarn so long ago I can’t even credit the creator. I tried and tried to make Calorimetry work but never succeeded. So many times I thought I’d have it knit between #CLE and #COL but I was always ripping it out. It has been widely discussed that there are problems with the pattern and photos. It’s simply math…you’d think I’d be able to figure it out. But I found the Tabata pattern from Knitspot and love the result. I didn’t bind off in pattern, but kept the ridge anyway. And here I am, big mouth and all, not even wearing it properly on my head. It’s a quick project and easy to grab and go for a walk or run.
I also finished my Jane Eyre shawl. The pattern, Eyre of Romance, is very well written. I made 5 sections instead of the 3 (if I recall correctly) that the pattern calls for.
I like the Cascade Ecological Wool and I like to look at the shawl. It is very warm. Alas, I do not look anything like Jane Eyre when I wear it.
I think I’m just a “broad”…..with a “broad” back that is. I’m just not sure I like the ruffles along my back.
Nevertheless, It is cozy wrapped around my neck like a shawl.
I will update my Ravelry page with details.
Love them both and now I’m off to follow your link to the earwarmer!
Wow – I have been absent from the blogging world and when the “cat’s away the mice will play”! I caught up on as much as I could and I love the knitted ear warmer. That looks like a project on my skill level, that i could tackle right now. But we have so little opportunity to wear it! I can’t believe the snow you have…it is almost summer in Louisiana! So fun to see all that you have made in the past months….I am trying to get back to regular blogging again – and reading my favorite blogs like yours. I didn’t realize how much I missed it.
Thank you for the kind words….they mean a lot. Funny how one develops these friendships in “blogland” ! You are right about writing and sharing…it does help.
I shouldn’t have waited so long, but hopefully, the healing process will speed up now. I am working hard to make that happen. Maybe I will email you as it sounds like you have had your fair share of troubles too. Getting old is hard!
Oh I love them both. You inspire me to knit Jane.
I think that you are the only one noticing your broad back.
Plus broad backs are beautiful!
And I think your graying hair is lovely too.
