listen all y’all …

… it’s not sabotage.  (And, anyway, I’m listening to The Kinks.)
But still: this Jitterbug stuff is pretty nice, though a bit of a distraction from the reading and the typing and the quotations and the citations.

I have been ignoring this shawl lately.  Not in favor of a shiny new project — I’m still on the prowl for something to blow my mind in that department — but just on account of pure sloth.  It’s reached the very-long-row stage and after lavishing attention on it during a car trip to Walla Walla, Washington (yes, it’s real), I was kind of ready for a break.  Luckily, the siren song of Vincent’s Apron lured me back to the fold.

Unfortunately, the way things are shaping up, I’m afraid I’ll have an awkward amount left over.  Oh well, a small price to pay.

p.s. The weather is lovely here, but I miss my blue table.  And my kitty.

  1. this colorway is absolutely lovely. it is the one that always sets me searching online yarn shops for jitterbug. enjoy walla walla — and i miss your blue table too!

  2. is this the first time we’ve seen knitting NOT on the blue table?

    I am all about that yellow these days. Really pretty.

  3. Love that color! I find the long rows at the end of triangle shawls to be pretty draining.

    Hopefully we can meet up while I’m in Oregon! I’ll email you with more details as we figure them out. Grad student knitters, unite!

  4. Blue TABLE! I keep meaning to ask what the blue background is in photos! I like the table too. I’m sure Alice is missing you too.

    The yellow yarn is really lovely, especially in that light. I think all of the Ishbels that you’ve knit have gotten to me. I was trying to put it off at least until I finished one sock, but I think I’m going to go ahead and buy the pattern tonight. Enabling of sorts. 🙂

  5. I love that yellow Jitterbug! I’ve been trying not to buy it for ages now, but your lovely shawl might just push me over the edge… What’s the pattern? It’s pretty!
