happy july!

Almost, anyway! Can you believe how quickly this year has gone? I think the older I get, the faster the years go.

I’ve got a bunch of stuff on the needles right now and I’m pretty in love with them all. This one hasn’t seen much attention the last couple of days, but I’m anxious to get back to it!

That’s the Viola merino fingering weight, and I’m working it up into a shawl – I love triangle shawls, but this one’s a little different. Still from the top down, but it won’t be a triangle – more like wedge shaped. Sort of a cross between a top-down triangle and a top-down raglan. I’ve got an edging in mind, but we’ll see how that looks when I get to it (hopefully pretty soon).

The stitch pattern is subtle but breaks up the colour a little bit, and it’s more interesting than stockinette too. I’ve got two skeins of this yarn to use so it’ll be nice and big!

Oh, and I must say, thanks for your great response to Bellevue! I can’t wait to see some of your finished projects.
