parklife

It's summer! Or at least almost. Summer to me means bringing my knitting project outdoors, in this example to the park. Nothing is better than relaxing an knitting in the grass on a sunny day!
I'm continuing the shawl I started yesterday, and I think the colors will turn out pretty good. 12 is my magic number, so I'm knitting 12 stripes in each color, but I started with only 6 rows of the garter-stripes to push the colorchanging 6 rows forward, and change the color of the garter stitches in the middle of the stockinette rows... If you understand what I'm trying to explain. I don't blame you if you have no idea what I'm talking about.
I'm also planning some beads on the ruffle edge for this shawl. Maybe a row or two with some small matching beads... don't know. It's exciting to plan a project while I'm knitting, who knows how it will turn out!
Isn't the colors just shockingly different from the last shawl I made?
"Yey, I'm so happy to be in the park!"

Skjønner godt hva du mener, og det blir veldig fint slik:) Og været har vært helt upåklagelig i dag. Skulle ønske det kunne vare en stund, koselig med utestrikking!

Din datter ser så dejlig ud! Hyggeligt at sidde i parken og strikke - ærgerligt, at det er svært at tage symaskinen med ud... ;o)
