The arrival of May heralded the end of the first quarter of Project Spectrum. My ambitious plans of knitting the Astrid Shawl were thwarted early on when I realized that the web-like motifs were too demanding for my addled designing brain. I needed something simpler and soothing that I could come to in calmer moments.
Therefore I decided to knit Laura Chau's Simple Yet Effective Shawl.
Just the ticket and even though it's on the small side it's going to be a cozy neck warmer for the cooler months back East.......
...and speaking of East, that is the new spectrum for the next couple of months.....feels very apt considering we'll be spending about 5 days driving in that direction in June! Other elements to think of will be yellow, air, wood and Spring (think spring has already passed me by here in California)!
I'll be fondling this lovely buttery malabrigo sock yarn and trying to decide what I want it to be (it has a mate too).....before that though I have some serious secret knitting to get on with!!
