The up side to my unexpected week away was that I had plenty of time to knit. If you got back to April 15 - the last time I participated in Needlework Tuesday - you'll see that I was making a shawl from some beautiful aqua yarn, and that I had used up all I had and was waiting to get to the store for more. No such luck! The brand - Yarn Bee - is evidently out of business and, while they still had a large stock of some colors, there was no "robin's egg" to be found. I couldn't even find it on line. So - plan B.
I decided on a lovely red shade and bought 6 skeins this time. The two skeins of aqua got "un-knitted" and saved for another project - except for the bit I used to add stripes to my shawl. I love the red and aqua combination.
This was knitted using the Figure 8 Stitch on my largest round loom, and a #6 (chunky) yarn. It is so soft and snuggly - I can't wait for an evening to wrap up in it by the fire pit.
