It's been too long, geesh. Between packing, traveling, unpacking, repacking, painting, making, knitting, carving, packing unpacking... I haven't blogged since JUNE! So, sorry about that. But I have been knitting and makin' stuff over here! And I took pics along the way, so here we go!
The first project that has been bouncing along the road/plane/trains with me is this shawl from Farmer's Daughters Fibers .
I had the very good fortune of meeting the beautiful Candice (THE Farmer's Daughter) at the Vintage Market in Montana last summer. We talked all things beautiful, from her gorgeous yarns to my rustic and artsy handmade hooks. It's one of those instant fiber friendship/sisterhood things.
And she makes beautiful yarns:
I kind of love her photography too. And that is a stick with moss in her picture <3!! Much love and shout out to the outdoorswoman in all of us! We love sticks! She also sells kits on her website. You know, a pattern with the yarn, so all you do is sit down comfy and go to town. I decided to embark upon my first shawl in the form of her kit with Caitlin Hunter's Prairie Skies Shawl.
Except I got it in colors Jellystone and hmm, blue? I'm sure she has a better name for this. She's super creative with her yarn names.
I was actually pretty stoked about a) knitting some made in Montana yarn b) joining the online KAL (Knit-a-long) for the pattern. I love knitting with people and don't often get the opportunity, due to travel schedule. So, KAL is the next best thing, right? All knitting the same thing, at the same time, making small talk, asking questions of each other, internet style. Except I'm like the child that is late to class and didn't complete the assignment in time. My excitement ended up being bottled up because as it turns out, posting to an online forum while traveling said globe is not unlike blogging, especially if you want a picture to go with that question of how you got 5 stitches instead of 3, and oh geesh, where's the camera, I'm just sitting here trying to relax while knitting, and wait a minute, is there a deadline on this KAL? Oh geesh...so I posted my great excitement about KAL in the KAL forum and that was the last those poor folks ever heard from me again. Until now, that is. I am here! Sorry I missed all the lemonade and cookies, but I made it! And to tell you the truth, I did not exactly breeze through this shawl-knitting thing. But it did look awfully beautiful (and very similar!) to my breakfast one morning! That is raspberry & blueberries yogurt with Fraises on top, of course!
Yeah, so this time my camera was nearby (yay!) and the scene was too pretty to pass up. But i digress, the deadline for KAL was over and done with and it seemed everyone had moved onto the next KAL! <wait for me!> So I continued on, I made it past the hurdles of casting on and the mysterious duplicate stitchery (turns out yarning over (YO) near a stitch marker can yield a stitch on the wrong side of the marker like a stray sheep over the fence) so I actually did cast on for this goose 3 times before I caught that sheep and made things right. And pretty soon I was adding the blue border. See, here I am with my blueberries thinking they match perfectly and are oh-so-pretty. (Apparently I knit during breakfast most often.)
And before you knew it (5 months later). Viola! A beautiful first shawl ever off my needles! And I decided to name it "My Traveling Prairie Skies" because this puppy tagged along on many travels through fall, snow, winter, and east coast winter (hence the greenery in the photo) but is now complete and a definite thing of beauty!
I'm <super> late to the KAL, but I'm heading over to there now to celebrate my slow knitting victory. And maybe I encourage one of you slow knitters out there to pick up a WIP (work-in-progress) because stitch by stitch these things do get done, even if a bit later than usual! A big thank you for Farmer's Daughter Fibers for making beautiful yarn and Caitlin Hunter, for writing a lovely shawl pattern which just happened to be my first <3
Here's to many more horizons and prairie skies in the future.
I would like to say that this blog really convinced me to do it! Thanks, very good post.
