I started a new project.  I wanted something quick and easy and fun … and, if possible, not too hard on the wrists.  The Storm Cloud Shawlette seemed like the right answer.

So I grabbed a little handspun, some big needles, and got started.


This color is called “shadow on the wall” and I’m not really sure why.  It’s peachy-yellowy-slighly pinkish-greenish hue does not make me think of walls or shadows.  It makes me think of brains.




Which is why I’m going out on a limb and calling my version braincloud.  Also, I know that feeling — cloudy brains — and wish it felt like super soft handspun wool.  In pretty colors.  Alas and alack … well, it’s at least a wooly feeling.



This is knitting up super fast: win!

  1. i like this plan: knit something simple in squishy handspun. perhaps it will help clear your head? can’t wait to see more of this.

  2. Mmmm… brains…

    It’s looking great! I tried that pattern once, and it completely stymied me. The handspun looks delightful to work with.

  3. Great pattern – 200 yards of fingering? I think I may have handspun that would work – and how nice it would be to use it finally! Thanks for the link to the pattern.

    I love the colors of yours – its going to be pretty when its done.
