(Random piece of information: As I type, there is a fly in my office that is buzzing around my head and it is driving me insane. I just tried to whack it with an old knitting magazine and I almost fell out of my chair because my balance is horrible. Now I’m just giving it the death stare. I’ll get you, you little fly. You’ll see.)
Finally, photos of my Wellington Worksock Shawl! This is my second test knit that I did for the designer, Sam Lamb, and as usual, she did not disappoint. The shawl is a fast knit (even faster if you don’t have two small children, I would imagine), and it’s a perfect project to have on hand for binging on Netflix or knitting on the go while you wait at the doctor’s office, visit friends, etc.. I used Cascade 220 and Cascade 220 Heather. It is the same yarn I used for her Hillier Hearts Cap and I am becoming a big fan of this yarn. It really is a workhorse of a yarn: soft, warm and durable. Perfect for knits that are frequently worn around the homestead during the colder months.
Speaking of the Hillier Hearts Cap, I had my friend Kimber model the hat after she finished modeling the shawl. She is one of the moms in my preschool coop and she is five months pregnant with her fifth child! They are expecting a little girl in June, something that is much deserved after having four little rambunctious boys back to back.
I encourage everyone to check out these designs on Ravelry. You won’t be disappointed. They are so much fun!
