I haven’t posted about knitting for weeks and now I’m posting about it 2 days in a row. That’s just how we roll over here at Carole Knits. It’s also what happens when I keep forgetting to take and process photos of a finished shawl. A shawl that’s been finished since the end of May, I should point out. Remember this post?
And here it is, a Flower Basket Shawl knit in less than a week from Douceur et Soie. It was indeed finished in time for the wedding but that day was so hot I didn’t even need it. The irony, it burns.
Also ironic is the fact that I knit this to wear with a dress that was slightly too big at the time and is now completely and utterly too big for me. This is not a bad thing since it was a $30 dress to begin with and I’m sure I have other things I can wear this shawl with and – hello! weight loss! yay! – but the irony of the situation is not lost on me.
It’s definitely not the season for mohair, though, so this little gem has been tucked away until fall temperatures are here.
And I’m certainly in no hurry for that to happen.
