Summer knitting

To keep my hands occupied, I made two washcloths, which I really like. Sure, washcloths are silly. But they're soft and lovely to use, and fun to knit. And you can finish them in a day or two.

Kristen got some Cascade 220 on our fieldtrip to Wildfiber in Santa Monica, and is at work on a rippled cable scarf that I am in love with.

And I got some cashmere laceweight in a color known as Plum Rose (which already makes me love it) and am off and running on the shawl pattern Ishbel. It took em two days to figure out a method of increasing that I was satisfied with, but now I am very happy with how this is coming along. we'll see how the lace portion goes!
