First is the wedding. Oh, so many things happening in relation to that. Not mine, of course, but my daughter's. I have the best sister ever who has planned the whole reception. I owe her big time. It will be a lovely affair, this I know. The dress is beautiful and so is the bride; the groom is handsome; the reception will be lovely.
Next, the yarn. Oh yes. There has been a lot of it lately. As suits me. And laceweight. Oh, how I love the laceweight right now. Maybe it's because it has been so terribly hot at my house. Maybe because it's so soft. Maybe just because it's my current fancy. I don't know, but I love it and I am adding more to my stash. Down side? It takes longer to work into a finished project. That's OK. They are so lovely when they are done.
On the hooks and needles right now:
- A crochet country cotton shawl in a lovely blue cotton blend yarn (fingering weight) that will be oh-so-fun to wear with jeans. It's perfect.
- A crochet alpaca lace scarf. It's a beautiful heather green that reminds me of grass, and moss and the sea. It's so soft. And will be a beautiful lacy thing when it's done.
- A knit shawl called Traveling Woman. It is in a beautiful hand-dyed from a local dyer. Can't wait to see how it's going to look when it's knit up. It's lace also (in a fingering weight), so it will take me a while.
- A crochet shawl that I have been working on (more off than on lately) in a lovely laceweight yarn for a year and a half. I really want to get it done. It's circular and I want it big. The bigger it gets, the longer each round takes.
And lots of plans for lots more yarn. Oh, to have more time to knit and crochet. I hope I do soon!
