Something new on my 36 inch circulars.  I know it's a little on the pink side....well, a lot on the pink side.  Honestly, in good light, it's more of a "brick" color.  In fact, that's the name of the color on the label:  "Brick".  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!

Yesterday, I cast on a new little shawlette.  Saving the details for later, I can only say this...I'm loving the pattern.  That's all it is, really, an all-over pattern, with a teeny bit of an edge, both literally, and figuratively.

The yarn is soft, but it isn't as tightly twisted as I am used to.  This is both good and bad.  The good thing is, the yarn is very fluffy, filling in the knitting, while showing off the pattern.  The bad thing is, it separates a bit while I'm knitting.  Not enough untwisting to drive me crazy, yet!

Stay tuned!


  1. I love the colour - just like my cherries.

    Thank you for the recipe tip - I made jam in the end as they turned very quickly.

  2. Hello Jan

    I've just completed my flowery Cardigan. If you would like to have a look, you can find me on Ravelry. Karlina. Or I could send you a picture by e-mail as I haven't started my handcraft blog yet.

    I don't know if I'd rather start a shawl (you pink is wonderful) or another cardigan. Anyway, it't the end of term and I have lots of other work to do ...
