After an intense semester, I am delighted to report that this is all I have on my plate right now:
I have a sense that I’ll do a lot of lace knitting this summer. I’ve been drawn to lace weight lately, and specific projects in mind. The orange one on top is for a design project I’m working on. I think the teal will be either the Seraphim Shawl or the Peacock Feathers Shawl. The color is really perfect for Peacock Feathers, but I think it might be a bit much and that Seraphim is more my style. The yellow in the middle is actually already in use.
A very old friend is graduating from my alma mater on Sunday, so I’m knitting her an Ishbel in yellow. The yarn is Malabrigo Sock, which is divine.
I chose yellow because yellow is my alma mater’s main color. Also, each class at my school is assigned a color on a four-year rotation, so 2005 (my year) and 2009 share the color yellow. (Yes, I’m a nerd about school spirit. No, I’m not embarrassed. See here). So really, yellow is the perfect color. I’m not a huge yellow fan in general, but this is an especially pretty yellow and I’m really enjoying working with it.
