tending my yarn garden :)
Good morning, my knitting friends! I've got two shawls on the needles this week: the blue is a gorgeous hand-dyed merino fingering from the Palouse Yarn Company that I picked up in Moscow, Idaho, earlier this year (while college visiting with our Daniel). When traveling, LYS stops are a must, right? I'm playing with stitch patterns and am enjoying the subtle variations of blue in this yarn so much that I know I'm going to love the way this knits up--yay! The red is a lovely lace-weight silk from Knitpicks that I had to tink a bit when I discovered a mistake I'd made in the lace section, but my stitches are all in order now, so onward we go.
My summer reading is scattered between my Bible, a devotional, Mother Earth News (among other magazines), One Year After (the followup to One Second After, the EMP book I recently finished), and I'm still listening to The Girl on the Train on Audible.
And if you're wondering where I got my adorable project bag, it's one of Wanda's, although her shop is currently on a break. If you're looking for a new project bag, may I recommend you take a look at Carrie's Etsy shop: StolenMinutes? I've got one of her medium bags on order and will share when it arrives. :)
Finally, if you entered the IG giveaway I shared last week, click over to see if you're the winner!
