I've also started a new shawl, and it is zipping along. It's from my favorite new knitting magazine, Knit Wear, also from Interweave. The shawl is knit from one corner, starting with only 3 stitches, progressing to its ultimate size, knitting the border alongside the body, then finishing with the border going up the other side. This is hand-dyed merino, on size 6 needles. It's fun and interesting, and I have plans to make another in the Jagger Zephyr, with beads along the border.
Yesterday, LouAnn's son, artist Nick DeFord taught a group of the Tuesday Weavers to make free form baskets. It was a beautiful day, with lots of students, and a wonderful teacher. This is my basket, and free form it was. I need to trim it up and remove the jute that was holding wayward reeds in place, but I know it will not be my last basket. It was so much fun!
Today is supposed to be beautiful, but I need it to warm a little bit more before I get out there and garden. Might need one more cup of coffee and just a couple rows on the new sweater. What a lovely Sunday!
