First up I’ve been working on the 198 Yards of Heaven and am loving it! Lace knitting never looks pretty until it’s blocked, so keep that in mind. All I lack is the border and it will be finished.
My focus knitting right now is the Mara Shawl by Madelinetosh. I’m using Brooks Farm Mas Acero yarn and it is a dream to knit with. I cast this on because I needed some knitting that didn’t require much thought to work on during The Loopy Ewe Spring Fling this weekend!
And I finished two quilt blocks at the retreat I went on recently. This is a block of the month from my favorite quilt shop and the theme this year is Civil War.
On to my “knitting excitement” news, which I referenced above. I’ll be flying out Thursday morning with my mom, headed to St. Louis for Spring Fling, a knitting retreat! It’s hosted each year by The Loopy Ewe and I’m so glad mom and I have the opportunity to go.
