Finding time to knit

I had some rare free time today so I cast on for a shawl using Kid Merino by Crystal Palace Yarns in Fern Mix. The picture doesn't do it justice...it's a wonderful muted shade of greens ~ which for those of you who really know me know that green is my absolute favorite. You can scroll down to see how many lucious shades they have in this yarn.

My friend Cindy bought me two balls of it while I was visiting her last summer. The woman who owns the yarn shop provided the pattern free with purchase. It only takes two balls to make a shawl.....not bad. I'd like to get it done over the next two weeks, think I can? I also want to finish up a few other projects over the summer.

We listed the house this week and officially have the sign in our yard. It's bittersweet....I am excited for the change but also a bit sad. Hubby and I built our lives together in this home. As I write this I can smell the lilacs (my favorite) growing just outside the window ~ and I know that as we look for our new home I will be looking to see if there are lilacs outside and a nice spot to plant my garden.

    Glad you like that fern green mix - I've been in a green mood the last couple years and enjoying doing green color combinations. Let us know when you finish and post the photo so we can link to it from our Crystal Palace web site -

    The fern mix is a gorgeous combination. I'm also looking forward to knitting with the Painted Iris as well...it's not green but it is pretty!
