Sunday afternoon, I started coming down with a little flu-ish type bug. I snuggled up in my chair with a cozy blanket, a hot cup of tea, and some knitting and made a really great start on my Juneberry Triangle.
This is one of those patterns that I knew I just HAD to knit as soon as I saw it. I’m a big fan of Jared Flood’s designs and this one in particular is exceptional. I love how the lace patterns flow into each other, the superb texture, and the fact the pattern works well in both worsted and sport weight yarns. Actually, truth be told, since I’m currently knitting it in fingering weight yarn, it works well in that weight too. And it is quite surprisingly a quick knit (I’m currently finishing up the last 1/3 of the knitted edging) despite the intricacy of the lace patterns and bobbles which make this shawl pattern so wonderful.
Due to the healing combo of rest, good tea, and knitting I am feeling much better now AND I’ve almost finished a new shawl.
In other news, here in Prince Edward Island was are ushering in Spring with a bit of a snow storm. I was also told that on both Spring and Autumn Equinox that you can balance an egg on its end so you know that the kids and I had to try it out. And do you know what? It takes some time and patience but it really does work.
How are you enjoying your first day of Spring?
