I picked up my knitting this morning to photograph it. I grabbed my coffee cup as well, and started to laugh. Look at this!
My coffee cup, the magnets on my chart holder, and my knitting all match. Trust me when I tell you that when I grabbed that coffe cup this morning, my knitting was the last thing on my mind. I was just concentrating on staying on my feet. I’m not a morning person. (And no, I didn’t drink my way through the Superbowl last night. I knit!)
Sometimes things are just serendipitous. I looked up serendipity on Merriam Webster this morning and the definition is “finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for”. Cool!
Did you know that if you need a dictionary in a hurry, you just go to www.mw.com? I use it all the time. There. Now you can say you learned something today.
So, what is it that I’m knitting? It’s Caricia by Anne Hanson of Knitspot. The pattern just came out on Friday. I left her a comment that I was not going to start it any time soon. I made it all the way til Saturday night.
Look at that pattern.
I’m using Handmaiden Casbah in the Sangria Colorway. I’m going to warn you about a website!!! Evelyn at Knitty-Noddy has the most gorgeous yarn selection, especially all the Handmaiden yarns. I’m pretty sure the website sucks your credit card right out of your wallet. And her customer service is amazing!
I have one more shot of Caricia for you.
I just love that edging! It’s knit at the same time as the body of the shawl. (I have a confession to make. I’ve never done a knit on edging on lace.)
Make sure to go back to the last post and get yourself entered in the drawing for some free yarn!!!
I’ll be back soon with some unusual bedtime prayers and the contest winner.
