shawl. It is lovely but difficult to photograph. I omitted the final repeat of texture because I didn't have quite enough yarn but it is a good size for a spring and summer wrap. I often am looking for a lightweight neutral shawl to wear in the air conditioning. Just think of it - air conditioning. I enjoyed working with the yarn and the pattern.
Yesterday the sky was a bright blue and I had a lovely walk. The past weekends' ice was melting and the thirty one degree air was crisp. I was warm enough. My daughter took this photo on her walk in Connecticut. I cannot lie, I'd like to be walking beside her under that blue sky. Blue skies have been scarce across the country this winter.
Enough griping about the weather. Today promises to be a little warmer with a not quite-so-bright- sky but still, it is blue enough. A good day for running errands and getting out to Yoga class before the next snowfall.
sock and cast on a second. I also cast on a sweater for Norah. The yarn, from my local yarn shop, is plump and soft. I am enjoying it. Setting up the garter stitch panel and raglan increases took three tries. Oy. I am sure I was distracted by the wonderful audio voice of Michelle O'Bama. Her honest straight-forward thoughtful approach to life shines through in her story. I am reading Miss Kopp Just Won't Quit. Stewart writes a rollicking tale laced with a wry sense of humor. This series is based on the career of Constance Kopp, the first woman police officer in Hackensack, N.J.* She is a funny, no nonsense, admirable heroine who champions the rights of young women. The novel is light and serious at the same time.
Joining Kat and the Unravlers before I go enjoy this brief respite from gray days. I hope you see a little bit of blue sky in your neck of the woods soon.
