Random thoughts of a fiber enthusiast - mostly fiber related, sometimes coherent

On Edge

I lieu of starting something new, I’ve decided to go ahead and start on the edging for the Circle of Life shawl. It’s progressing nicely. I’ve just finished the 1st of the 8 sections. Skipping directly to the dark brown is definitely the right decision. There is nice contrast. No pictures until the edging is done.

What I’m finding interesting is that while Ellie has shown absolutely no interest in my fibers in the past, she seems to think that the shawl is the cat’s meow. She loves jumping on my lap and knead the heck out of the shawl before taking a nap on it. While I would like to think that it’s me that she’s showing some love for, but unfortunately, it appears that the shawl is the draw. Ah well.


Yet another fabulous SOAR. And again, there appears to be no photos on my camera, save this. The Circle of Life Shawl at the SOAR gallery. I didn’t get to the edging, so I just finished it with a crochet bind off so it can make it into the gallery.

And here it is on the hotel bed for scale. It’s a queen sized bed.

After much consultation, I have decided to skip the medium brown that just started to appear in the progression and jump straight to the dark brown for contrast, and a wee bit of drama. However, I won’t start it for a few weeks. After a summer spent on 2 major projects, I feel a need for a few instant gratification projects.

So far, I’ve finished a sock, singular. I need something a bit more frivolous. Suggestions?
