Just before Job was born, I was gifted a beautiful shawl knit in The Fibre Co.’s Meadow yarn.  That shawl has become one of my most worn knits, partially because it’s lovely to wear something that someone else made for me, but also because I really love the feel of that yarn.  It’s fine and delicate, yet sturdy.  It isn’t soft in the way a pure merino yarn is, but it is soft in it’s own unique way.  I can’t really describe it!

So now I am knitting with Meadow myself, a shawl that is meant to be a gift as well.  The colorway I chose is called Larkspur, and I think it’s beautiful.  (My Ravelry notes are here.)

I’m still reading Don Camillo, but am also reading a new to me gardening book, Vegetable Gardening in the Southeast.  I’ve been gardening for an embarrassingly long time to still be as terrible at it as I consider myself to be.  Information doesn’t stick with me, I have to look everything up all over again every year.

Knitting:  My Grey Goose Shawl.  Mostly mindless and perfect.

Reading:  Finished Sylvia’s Farm. The Little World of Don Camillo arrived in the mail yesterday. I started reading it last night, and it’s so hilarious I kept having to whisper it out loud to Jonny, trying not to wake Job with my giggles!
