avonlea shawl...


I had the good fortune to meet the delightful young designer audry nicklin last week...

audry nicklin with her book
she and her mother were passing through Mendocino on their way home to the bay area where, as any real knitter would,
she made her way to my favorite yarn shop...

 Audry is the author of LIT KNITS, a well-organized book of 
ten projects inspired by classic literature...

of course, I bought the book

this weekend I pulled out three skeins of o-wool 2-ply
in a lovely plum
and cast on the Avonlea shawl...




something comforting--a symbolic hug--for a friend who is 
experiencing great sorrow...

pardon me...
I must get back to my knitting...

peace...

blessed rain...

...finally!



though it is not enough to replenish our dry wells,
this bit of wet is undeniably welcome...


and, of course, it is perfect knitting weather...

the vest...


while I continue to work on several projects that were begun last year, I am itching to begin a vest that was promised to him...

it will be made in this scrummy nordique,
which was purchase on sale 



unfortunate that this yarn has been discontinued...is is lovely!


the vest will be a simple v-neck with slightly unconventional cables up the sides, and, in my usual fashion, I am swatching by making a hat...
