Just to make it clear, all my t pins are in one box. I have several boxes of dressmakers pins and a couple of wheely things still filled with the pins they were purchased with. My pins are in order. I have been using t pins to pin out shawls this week, so I guess we know where that part of the dream comes from, and I am constantly on the search for things to make storage more efficient here. Clearly, what I really need is more knitting. MUCH more knitting.
Yesterday, I pinned out my pretty little blue shawl/scarf.
I fell in love with this Kauni colour in 2013 when I purchased yarn for several Kauni dreams I have. (What you don't have Kauni dreams?) Those dreams are still unrealized but one day...
I loved this colour then but did not order any. My local LYS carries some once in a while, though it is not a staple yarn, but more, one os the special things they bring in for fun. And not too long after, they had a large basket of Kauni with this lovely soft blue sitting waiting for me.
I think it is a blue and white thing, a Delft and Willowware thing, but soft blue and crsip white just make my heart beat faster. I wanted a very shallow scarf, and that is exactly what I knit. The beginning of each row has a yarn over increase before the first stitch and the first stitch is a kfb increase. I finished it with the edging from Nancy bush's Truly Tasha's Shawl. I had thought to use a different one, but in the end, this is exactly right for it in spirit. Simple and just the smallest touch of lace. Not dainty but still very feminine.
I have about 10 grams of yarn left, owing to plans for a different edging, but it is about 5 feet across and really, that is just fine for how I want to use it. Its just to fill in the neckline of my coat, so smaller is better.
That was a Friday night knitting event, and book ended the start of a lovely long weekend where Mondays knitting book ended the other.
Today's task is one more shawl, my Margrathea, to block, and then this block-a-palooza will be done and all will be ready to wear.
