New Project

My friend Laura at Dragon Wing Arts designed the pattern for my latest knitting project, an Outlander-inspired bulky shawl.  It's a perfect quick, portable knit.  Between the Tulpenkraz lace, and the Bohus-inspired sweater which I have yet to calculate stitch counts for, my projects are very ambitious.  Add a week-long cold to the mix and this shawl is perfect.

I pulled out some burgundy singles yarn, formerly most of a baby sweater but I think the recipient is about to start college!  I'm about 1/3 finished and it's working up well.  The lace edges will show more once it's blocked.

Hey, so part of today was horrible.  There was a school shooting north of Seattle, another one.  I actually saw the medevac helicopter fly over my apartment, on its way to Harborview.  Somehow that just makes it worse.

I wish people would stop hurting each other.  Isn't there enough pain and heartache in the world without adding to it?  I'm not very coherent in my sadness, but I feel it's still important to say something.

I listened to some beautiful string music tonight, with new friends.  That part was very nice.
