It’s been awhile, hasn’t it?
I won’t bore you with all the details (and trust me, they are plentiful!), I’ll just sum it all up really quick: We moved (and by we, I mean 2 adults, 5 kids and 3 cats crammed in a mini-van!), from Arizona to Ohio.
So, it’s taken just a little bit of time to adjust and get settled.
Because I didn’t have enough changes going on in my life, haha, I decided that it was also time for a pattern update and new logo (along with a new theme and pretty much everything else as well!).
In case you’ve missed it, here is my fabulous new log (designed by my incredibly talented friend Amanda Anson):
I managed to finally unpack one of those stubborn boxes that I tend to just pass by most days (and by pass by, I really mean stub my toe on as I run from the room to stop a child from making a huge mess….because Summer vacation……), and I’m kind of glad that I decided to take some time to unpack this particular box this morning because I found my sample for my Once in a Lullaby shawl. Which of course meant that I needed to take advantage of the overcast sky and get some new pictures of this beauty!
I’d forgotten how much I love this simple shawl (really, simple is the best sometimes, isn’t it?) I used one of Kim Dyes Yarn Gradient cakes to knit this one, in Rainbow colors of course! But you could use any Sock/Fingering weight yarn of your choice, I’d just make sure you have 490-500 yards of it.
This shawl showcases one of my favorite constructions, a semi-circular shawl worked from the top down. It has just a bit of texture stitches (think simple Garter Stitches here!), and that ruffle edging, just perfection!
This would be a great knitting project if you are ready to take the next step, or even if you are just ready to tackle knitting in general. You’ll need some basic knit stitches in your tool box and you’ll be all set to make this shawl your very own. If you want to get the pattern, I’ve got a treat for you! You can get it for free by signing up for my email list right here
If you have your pattern and are ready to take the next step, but you aren’t sure how to get started, leave me a comment and let me know! I’ll be happy to put together something to help you out, ok?
Don’t forget to keep looking for the rainbows, even on the darkest days. Isn’t it nice to know that there is a promise and a hope that is bigger than ourselves?
