Having finished up my last stash-diving project, the Fireside Socks, I think I'm going to focus on a few small design projects over the next few months that I'd like to prioritize. I am currently in the final third or so of my final project for the Ennea summer edition, and right now, I'm focusing on getting that finished up so I can get the final pattern written up.
I did, however, cast on a smaller, portable design project, which I'm going to list as my new WIP project. I really like the Nimue yarn that I've been carrying in the shop - it's a 50/50 silk/merino blend and I think it is lovely for many things, but it's been sort of nudging me about working up a small shawl from it. I thought maybe a one-skein project would be a good starting point, something fairly simple, but easy to wear for summer with a bit of lace trim at the edge.
I'm working this up as a crescent-shaped shawlette. The body will be basic garter stitch, with a knit-on lace border at the bottom curved edge. The colorway is "Library", which is a little bit darker in real life than it reads here in the sun. It's a muted rosey-brown with some plum highlights.
I have no specific goals for this, except that I'd like to get "some" knitting done on it in the next week. If I can put in even a couple of nights of knitting on it, I think I'll be pretty close to getting ready to start the edging.
All for now....
