New beginnings…
Knitting YarnThis yarn pyramid is about to be turned into Deep End shawl. The pattern was in my Ravelry queue for many weeks and I am happy to finally get to it. It will be an in-between project to work at during road and hiking trips and casual no-brainer knitting time. After rummaging in my stash I found local 100% cotton yarn – Eulali. I am going to use five colors instead of six recommended in the pattern, as nothing else seems to match.

Knitting YarnThe shawl will be a part of Andi’s KAL, April is the last month so I better hurry up with it! Summer is just two months away which means I have to really start working on gift knitting for my dear family – this July I am planning to send a parcel with handknits to my Grannies and Mom in Russia. I feel sad of not being able to visit this year. The most that I can do is to put all the love and warmth of my hands in each stitch… The shawl will be perfect for my dear Mom!

Knitting YarnThe colors are so fresh and all about spring! I think this is the first time I am using so many colors in one pattern and choosing them wasn’t easy! I feel like an artist with a palette of water colors šŸ™‚

Knitting YarnThe pattern recommends 3.25mm (US 3) needles, well, knowing myself I went down to 2.5mm and the gauge is actually matching perfectly! Garter stitch, I missed you!

Knitting YarnI hope you had a lovely weekend!
