I know. I know. It's not a cardigan, and it's not gray. But I did finish a thing . . . and it might be one of my favorite things ever. And just in time, too. Because winter showed up this week, and I can use all the wool I can get.
(On Monday we had a snow storm. Yesterday, it was clear. Sunshine and blue skies even. But then the lake effect snow machine turned on at pretty much the same time Tom and I had our one opportunity to do a knitting-photo-shoot while there was still light. So here I am . . . in the pouring snow!)
It only took me a couple of rows to "get" why Andrea Mowry's "shifty" designs are so popular! Oh, my -- what fun this was to knit! All those colors. All that texture. And a great, satisfying end result.
I had a "yarn palette" of 7 lovely Briar Rose colors to play with -- and then . . . I just let it flow!
Let it grow, let it grow. . .
Let it blossom, let it flow.
In the sun, the rain, the snow. . .
Love is lovely, let it grow.

So. Gray cardigan next?
