Those two shawls that I whipped up in less than a month wiped me out a bit. Between that and prepping for TNNA, I hadn't knit in over a week when I hopped on the plane to Michigan. I was so confident that I'd crank out that baby hat before the end of the flight that I stopped and closed my eyes. I forgot how busy knitting events can be and I didn't finish that hat until almost a week later on my flight home. Then I cast on another hat because I just wasn't ready for something that required more creativity.
Here you go. All my knitting progress for the past few weeks. Naylor Streets. A wee one and a big one.
I'll be honest, after that last designing frenzy, I was worried that I hadn't thought about what new design was next. But by Sunday of TNNA, I was inspired and ready to cast on....just no time!
These three skeins of Anzula Cloud called to me right away. Aren't they lovely! As soon as I started swatching, I fell in love with the yarn all over again. I don't think I appreciated how soft it was last year when I furiously knit my shawl to wear to my sister's wedding. I can't believe my sister's wedding was exactly one year ago! Time flies!! Happy Anniversary sis!
I'm liking these colors together. What do you think?
Here's wishing everyone a Happy 4th of July here in the US! I'm not quite sure mine will be that exciting as I've been getting over a cold (seriously, when it is 90 something degrees out...doesn't seem fair?!?!) and I must be better by Friday when I leave for a long weekend in Yosemite to meet up with Disco!!! Oh, reminder that Wish I Might and Falling Slowly are still on sale through July 8!
P.S. Craftsy is having a sale (up to 50% off) on 5 great knitting classes from now through July 5th, including Anne Hanson's Button Bands and Buttonholes Class (which I love!), and Shawlscapes with Stephen West , another one I enjoyed. And I just signed up for Laura Nelkin's second class, Lace from the Inside Out Class because I loved the first one!
