The summer of the shawl

I’m thinking about summer and about shawls because it’s negative too damn cold today, and both shawls and summer make me think of warm….

The summer of 2013 is the summer that I got a little obsessed with making shawls, as evidenced by the fact that I made 5 shawls and a cowl….

I’m not sure which is my favorite, maybe the black and red striped one. But I’m awfully proud of the purple lace, too.  I tend to wear them more as scarves around my neck, than shawls across my shoulders. I am working on another one. OK, I actually have two in progress right now. All right, fine, I have THREE in progress. It’s a bit ridiculous, but it keeps me off the streets, I guess.

    Do I recognize the yarn from Sweet Jazz in a previous pair of socks? Those are lovely shawls. I don’t know when you find the time with all your reading, writing, quilting, and knitting to even sleep much less keep up with your family.
