Knit, Relax, Repeat

So yesterday was the most lazy day I’ve had in a long time.  Basically I knit and napped all day.

Danish Tie Shawl 8-25-2008 9-00-57 AM

I worked diligently on the Danish Tie-Shawl and bound it off, but as you can see it back live and on the needles again.  It needed to be about 3-4 inches longer.  It was 21 inches once off and after trying it on, I think about 25 inches would be a lot better.  Anyway, I was trying to get away with just using the blues, but I’m just about out now of the blues.  So when I put the brown in it didn’t work before, so now I’m just decided to do two rows of each color at the end until I get to the length I need, working the browns in.

I think it’s working ok, but now I’m just like this thing needs to get done before I send it back to the frog pond.  I keep tellling myself that this is a ultilitarian piece and I’ll be wearing it with jeans and it will all be fine.  Although now that I’ve done this once, I’ll be planning my colors a little differently.

ETA – here’s another picture.

  • I’m soooo much in love with this color combo that I can’t understand you don’t love it too 🙂 I need to get back on track with mine. I would love to wear it as the weather’s getting cooler… oh well, one of these days I’ll get back to it 🙂

  • I’m done with mine and love it – it is in natural colors – and I would probably plan my striping better next time, too I love your blues – you’ll enjoy it once the weather cools! I can’t wait to be able to really wear mine! enjoy 🙂

      I think that would look wonderful with a pair of jeans. I love the color combo also.
