My Different Lines Shawl

- Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

My BFF Wanda is modeling my shawl. I am very happy with how it turned out. It drapes nicely and will be nice to wear out on chilly evenings. I managed to finish this in between working on my knit-a long shawl, which is progressing nicely. Never thought I would knit a shawl from fingering weight yarn.
The knit and crochet show this past weekend was great. Plenty of eye candy for us yarnaholics. Loved having a show that didn't require an overnight stay! Next up is SAFF in Asheville.

It is Finished/Different Lines Shawl

Finally off the needles and on the blocking board. I have my ceiling fan blowing on it to speed up the drying process. The shawl grew when blocked. I was so ready to finish this one.However, This was an easy, fun, pattern. The shape remind me of a sports pennant. You could easily knit it in your favorite collegiate colors.

Leisure Knitting

When I need a break from my KAL shawl project, I am working on my Different Lines Shawl. I stumbled upon this pattern while looking at the Stripe Study Shawl. Definitely different from my usual shaped wraps or shawls. I dyed the gold yarn in my crockpot after I was unable to find a contrasting color that I liked. Hope to be wearing this one soon!

Tupelo Honey Shrimp and Grits

A beautiful day was
made even better by a visit from our two girls. I made these shrimp and grits from the Tupelo Honey Restaurant in Asheville,NC. This and many other recipes are in their cookbook. The grits have goat cheese and fresh basil in them. Can't wait to go there in Oct. When we go to SAFF. No leftovers tonight!
