Amari Shawl KAL Update

The Amari Shawl pattern from Juniper Farms has been my main project for the last couple of weeks. Its simplicity has been a welcome relief from knitting the oversized raglan sweater from hell. Fortunately, the cool blue shade of Blue Sky Alpaca Melange provides a type of mental air conditioning even if it's hot. This project is what knitting should be; easy, relaxing, and most of all satisfying. Part of it is that I'm really not caring about gauge. I may have forgotten to increase a time or two and I'm not even thinking about it.

Sure as Sunday I know I'm going to be gritting my teeth when I get to the lace part, but I'm hoping that the odd increase here and there might do to trick to end up with the number of stitches I will need for the lace repeat. Fingers crossed.

Don't grit your teeth and don't worry. The lace part is actually pretty straight-forwar d and simple. You'll probably memorize the lace pattern after a few rows and just watch it develop and bloom. Your FO is going to be gorgeous!

What's going on now?

Miracles have happened and husbeast received and accepted a job offer at his dream company last week. He starts work soon. We are breathing sighs of relief and expecting great things ahead.

I'm knitting. I've been caring for my two sons, living at my MIL's house, volunteering at our local co-op preschool and gardening. Trying to find time to write and to redefine this blog to embrace my current reality.
