This week has been challenging to say the least. I had a root canal on an abscess tooth and have spent the rest of the week gumming my food. My teeth were only decoration. Today, is the first day I was able to use my teeth on soft chewy items. Hopefully by Monday I’ll be truly able to chew my food so I can enjoy the holiday.
I have a few knitting projects on needles but needed something new and super easy. Absolutely no thinking involved. I considered starting a Pebble Beach shawl but it required me to read directions and when you teeth are throbbing and you want to cry needing to read directions and keep track of things is asking too much.
In the end I cast on a boneyard shawl by Stephen West. Technically by Stephen West, but you can’t really get more simple than a basic triangle shawl so I kind of consider this type of pattern authorless.
I wound my blue Tardis in the Void gradient set by A Hundred Ravens into a cake and cast on. After my leftie shawl I had about half a set left leaving me with about 150g of yarn. So I used both the untouched (100g) set and the left overs which will give me extra wide dark blue section since I only used 5 of the 7 colors in my leftie. I can’t wait to see it done and block it.
I love this shawl. Simple. beautiful. And just keep knitting because I want to get to the next color.
