I've finished three knitting projects this summer and all of them were Mystery Knit-along Shawls! The latest to cross the finish line is the biggest shawl I've ever knit!
And possibly the laciest!
- Project: Follow Your Arrow (Mystery KAL) by Ysolda Teague
- Yarn: Sock by Malabrigo Yarn, "Archangel" colorway, 2 skeins from 2 dye lots
- Needle: US 6
- Start to Finish: February 7, 2014 - September 2, 2014
Katie and I drove out to the Lake Michigan shore on Saturday afternoon and, though pretty breezy, I managed to take a few photos.
The "little yellow house" near the pier at Kewaunee is a favorite spot.
It's adorable (we've been here before) (some things have changed since then).

I managed to stretch my 4-day Labor Day Weekend into FIVE, and crossed a few things off my list, made progress on some others, and bought a new dishwasher. Heh. You just never know what's going to happen around here. We got a great deal and it's being delivered today.
I've been in fall cleaning mode... windows, closets, drawers... throwing everything that's not nailed down into the washer. I've been productive without putting too much pressure on myself... getting things back into some sort of order. It's good.

I haven't been knitting much this summer, preferring needle and thread (and making progress there, too). This morning I came across this:
...and I am down like a rug. Seriously. A Kaffe Fassett Mystery Knit-Along Afghan?? Gah. Details here and here. The knit-along starts October 1st!! Start your engines, gather your yarn! I'm so excited.
