Knitwear at the lake house

There has been knitting happening, even though the cats have had center stage.  Finally,  I have a FO to show you.  The Boneyard Shawl was declared to be sufficiently large this weekend, and was finished off during the LSU/Auburn game last night.  Yes, LSU won, thanks for asking.  Go Tigers! No, we didn’t go down to the stadium.  When college football is broadcast on TV my lake house has the best concessions, the most comfortable seats, the shortest bathroom lines, the best parking, and no drunk spills anything on my knitting!  As you can see in the lower left corner of the picture, DH even got me the traditional football mums.

I love the Knit Picks City Tweed DK yarn.  It was a joy to knit, it drapes wonderfully, and you just have to snuggle your face in its softness.  The alpaca content adds extra warmth, too. This shawl will certainly be in my book tote for Thursday’s EFM seminar.  Our daily highs are still in the upper 70’s, but  the over-enthusiastic air-conditioning makes it shawl weather.

    Nice! You make me feel like such a slow knitter. 😀 Well everyone does really. That’s really pretty.

    Oh that’s so pretty…and yes I agree! City Tweed DK is fabulous! (the HW, too!)

    And I can also say “ditto” on the football accomodations – far better in my livingroom than in the stands!
