I finished my Daisy Chains shawl last week, but didn't get it blocked in time for last week's Yarn Along.
It turned out pretty, though I'm kind of bashing myself in the head for making it gray. Gray, black, and navy tend to be my winter wardrobe colors. Why didn't I make this shawl a bright coral or powder blue, soft yellow or wisteria purple? Gray daisy chains are kind of like dead daisy chains. It's a good thing the daisy chains don't actually look like flowers.
I had a bit of trouble with this pattern. I am counting challenged, and the bottom pattern definitely requires attention. But, I did learn a new skill with the clusters in the centers of the diamonds.
As soon as I bound off the shawl, I started something familiar -- my favorite baby sweater. This time in KnitPick's Cotlin Sprout. The buttons will be dark brown.
I'm listening to The Life of Objects by Susanna Moore, but I just started it, so no opinion yet. I read Divine Intimacy (pictured) every day. It's a very old copy, given to me by my mother-in-law. I love it. Also reading lots of cookbooks as I plan my menus each week -- a goal for the year. I love Michele Quigley's Menu Planner made just for this purpose.
