Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

Back in November

I was posting about a shawl that my sister-in-law and I were going to work on together while we were in Houston for the big quilt show.  We were to at least get it started so that we didn't have to struggle with casting on while on the plane.  

We were going to work on Passeggiata.  


I chose these wool yarns while at a Plucky Knitter extravaganza held at Wool and Honey in Cedar, MI.  The color on the left is called Twill and the one of the right is called Brume.


This is where I got mine to before we left for our trip.  


I had gotten a little further along than I planned and that was because I forgot to change thread colors, so after "tinking" (ripping out/knitting backwards), I felt the need to use up the loose threads and then quit there.  


Of course on our trip, we were so busy and so tired at the end of each day, we never picked up our knitting.  The only time I touched it was on the flight back.


Once home, it really didn't take long to complete.  This was a really easy knit.


This is it after blocking.


In looking back at all my photos to find the progression of this shawl, I was amazed at all the "living" that took place over several months.  I thought I was being a slug this year, but there was a lot of knitting, quilting for myself and others, babysitting, holidays, etc.  So I guess I shouldn't feel bad about not getting more accomplished this year.  

Anyways, here's how I am wearing this shawl.  Not the greatest of pictures, but you get the idea.  


I love it and it is so very warm on chilly days.  

Next time I will be posting about some quilting, so stay tuned.
