I totally took a hiatus from all things blog related. I just jumped right into summer with both feet and in my down time I was mostly cooling off and not really knitting. We have been soaking up all things sun and trying to be as adventurous as possible. Mind you my kids are little and my tolerance for melt downs hasn't been high lately so our idea of adventure might differ a bit from yours :)
I am still trying to figure out that delicate balance that we all do, between work, family, friends, household chores, and enjoying the great outdoors. We have done some beach time at our favorite beach...
We have done some picnics up in the forest....I made these scones yesterday morning for breakfast....
and some more time at the beach, notice not any knitting anywhere.
July for my EZ knit a long is a shawl. I'll admit it, I'm a little bit afraid of this project. I have a pattern complete with yarn and needles all waiting for me and I haven't touched it (sigh). I am however casting on for this in the hopes that I can use it this summer at the farmer's market and even collecting veggies in my backyard. Fear not though I will not abandon ship this early in the knit-a-long and as soon as my little bag is finished I'll start the shawl.
Now I must go and catch up with all of you and see what you are working on!
I forgot here are some links for free shawl patterns. Silky alpaca lace shawl, aeolian shawl, shipwreck, floral fanasy shawl, bloom, laminaria, jerry, leaves and waves, nicky, ella, zeta, spanish dancer, josephina, Cold Mountain, patricia, tri-aran-angle, dagmar, maja, & jeanie. Hopefully these will give you a headstart!
