Hooray for Friday! Most of the week has been sunny and extra warm and I’ve finally been able to block the latest FO shawl.
Pattern :: The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief by Orange Flower Yarn
Yarn :: Gerschubie Fiber Arts Moderato, Uncle Billy colorway
Needle :: US 8 (5.0 mm) circular
This shawl was my hospital knitting project last week, cast on the day of ~J’s~ surgery and last bind off stitch seven days later. The pattern is simple, quick and keeps your interest.
Rather than a kerchief, I opted to add a repeat in order to make a larger shawl that will be perfect for cool autumn days. Gerschubie yarns are becoming favorites. I bought more at the fiber festival this spring. Moderato is a DK weight wool, very soft and squishy. I just love the color combinations and who wouldn’t be drawn to a colorway named Uncle Billy. I’m calling the shawl a win and looking forward to wrapping it around my shoulders this fall.

~J~ had a good report from the Doctor yesterday and we celebrated with our favorite Chinese takeout. One slice of his birthday cake remains. The robins and jays are having some sort of territorial/nesting squabble with lots of noisy chatter in the mornings. There may be a new robin’s nest under the deck but I haven’t been able to check. Another sunny day and the gardens are getting thirsty.
Enjoy your weekend!
