1. Shetland Triangle Shawl
I knit the Shetland Triangle in a 30%silk/70%merino yarn (12 pattern repeats).
The yarn is beautifully soft yarn and the pattern a truly lovely one. I am a bit disappointed that I could not block it to be a larger shawl. Perhaps because of the silk content?
2. Silk Feather and Fan Scarf
David returns home from his parents' house this afternoon. His mother is doing very well--as is the feather and fan scarf he is knitting from 100% silk yarn. This morning he sent me pictures of both:
I can't wait to have David sitting beside me on the couch--a fire in the fireplace, perhaps a cocktail in our hands, and the last stitches of sweaters coming for both of us.
