But all is well that ends in the well.
Since this yarn (Ranco Multy) is so very variegated, I went with the simplest pattern: Mara. The Barefoot Rooster finished a lovely version that first brought the pattern to my attention. The garter stitch is perfect relaxation knitting; and though the wool I’m using is fingering-weight, I hope I can get a good sized shawl out of it. After all, I did manage to wind two skeins: approx. 750 yards. And large shawls are in demand lately: the office I squat (approved but unofficial) is kept at a chilly 60 degrees, for reasons best known to those in authority.
Alright, the coffee is almost finished and it’s time to get reacquainted with some Freud. Saturday was a free day, after my very first Nashville concert on Friday night, but today it’s back to work.
And Alice runs a pretty tight ship.
