Endless Garter Stitch

That's my Wool Peddler shawl. I finally finished the bazillion rows of boring garter stitch and have moved on to the lace part. Lace always seems like frosting to me. You eat the boring white cake just so you can justify getting the chocolate frosting.

It's a pretty easy lace pattern, and in DK weight yarn (moose lace!), so it is still mostly a mindless project.

This is really squishy soft yarn, and the color is growing on me. It's a nice neutral that will go with almost everything I own. I might not over-dye it after all.

It's finally warming up enough around here to get outside without being bundled up in wool. We had our first brunch on the deck this morning. This is my afternoon project:

Baby herb plants! Those will get planted today.

  1. I just love to cook with fresh herbs from the garden! Nothing tastes better.

  2. Spent a lot of hours in my garden the past few days too. Mostly pruning. I’ve decided not to allow my shrubs grow taller than I am. Easier to maintain them as I get older. What herbs are you planting?

  3. I think your shawl will be lovely left the shade that it is, and I can’t wait to see the FO!

    I love to have an herb garden in the summer. Maybe this year, since our garden is in much better shape than it has been the past few years, I’ll plant one again. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Can’t wait to see your finished shawl. I agree garter stitch can be real boring to knit but there is something about it I just love!
