Knitting! Plus some gardening, cocktails, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

A New Landscape

Landscape Shawl in Green Mountain Madness

In late 2006 I knit a Landscape shawl by Evelyn A. Clark out of fingering weight Cherry Tree Hill Yarn Supersock Merino. It turned out really well, but I didn’t wear it much. I work in a lab not a office, so full size shawls are not really work friendly, and I live in an increasingly warm climate. But I’ve worn it out when in San Francisco, and I almost always get a compliment on it.

So, when I had quite a bit of Classic Elite Classic Silk to make a summer wrap for chilly evenings on the patio, I turned to this pattern again. Classic Silk has great stitch definition, so I thought the different texture stitches of the pattern would work well. So far, I am pleased with the result.

Lots of picots to knit!

I hustled up and got to the start of the stockinette section today.

And speaking of landscapes, here’s how our front lawn “landscape” is changing from thirsty grass to more drought tolerant plants. Mom wants to see!

The vast majority were put in last autumn, which is the perfect time to plant here, but some are blooming at the wrong time, so I think they haven’t quite gotten the hang of the seasons yet.

Well, I am off to knit another row.
Happy knitting!
