I had told myself that I wasn’t going to start a new project until some of my other ones were done and that my next project was going to be a cardigan. Well, that went out the window when Leanne from Arrow Acres posted a shawl (Stories from Snoqualmie Valley) that she wanted to work on as a KAL for the winter. It is beautiful and I thought that I would get a lot of wear out of it so I joined in. The cardigan will need to wait. The yarn that I’m using a Cascade merino/silk combination. I love the shine from the silk and I’m hoping that it will make the beautiful cabling stand out. I also chose this burnt orange color because I just love orange and I thought that it would be a nice color to wear to Rhinebeck in the Fall. We have a great knitting group that Leanne has fostered by inviting us to the farm to knit every so often. We hadn’t gotten together in a while and it was so nice to see everyone. We always have such a wonderful time. I’ve decided to get the book Brooklyn and will begin reading it tonight!
