another stripe.

Still here, still knitting! I didn’t mean to disappear this week. I was just waiting until my stripe study shawl “looked” bigger. As the shawl grows, each stripe takes longer. I’m not convinced that I’m doing the increases at the off-center center correctly, because the point of the dark stripes looks a little wonky. I wonder if a less open increase, like a kfb, might help with that. (Because I’m totally going to knit this again. And again.)

I’ll leave you with some visuals that demonstrate to me that spring is almost here:

Me, last week — wrapped in my terra shawl, a warm sweater, long underwear, and warm house boots.

Me, yesterday: in a lightweight shawl, a floral print, and pink! As I type this, the sky is clear and the birds are chirping. I’m headed back to the library as soon as it opens, but first, Boh and I are going to take a nice walk. Happy weekend!

  1. My hubby and I are off to take a nice walk, too! I wish we had our own Boh to walk with us, but for now we’ll have to deal with a dogless life. Love your spring outfit!

  2. The shawl is looking fabulous! Love the neutral colors and clean look. This time of year is always kind of nuts. A few snowflakes danced through the air on Friday, and today it hit 72 degrees. Weirdness!

  3. Hope you had a great weekend and took some time to relax and regroup.

    As far as the off center increases…it’s simply a personalized design element…

    Have a great week!

  4. You look so very nicely put together!
    It reminds me I have just GOT to stop forgetting that I own knitted shawls, that I could easily wear like that.
