I just completed another project with Handmaiden Sea Silk. Again, I’m in love!
The drape is amazing!
Sherri of The Loopy Ewe, put an idea of a virtual camp together. She called it Camp Loopy. From June 15- July 15, you had to do a two color shawl. (I already ordered my yarn for the next round, but that’s another story!) I chose Handmaiden Sea Silk in the Earth and Moss colorways. The whole time I was knitting it, I was thinking I didn’t like the two color idea.
Then I blocked it!
I was wrong. I’m going to get a lot of use out of this, especially in early fall.
The pattern is Morlynn. I did the largest size, but in my case, the yardage was off. I didn’t have enough of either color left to do one more row. I was using a scale at the end to make sure I didn’t run out. I had to cut a couple rows to make it. Its an easy pattern, and I enjoyed knitting it.
This last photo is just so you can see my beautiful flowers. I’m a lousy gardener, so we plant perennials and hope for the best. Actually, there’s a tree growing in the middle of these tiger lilies. I should fix that!
We have a quiet weekend ahead of us. My Hero left on Wednesday and will be home late tomorrow night. It’s been quiet without him. I’m used to his
snoring banter with the kids, and long conversations. So Sunday after church we will be hang out and catching up with life, because his next week is crazy too.
Have a blessed weekend, everyone!
