cicada3A Little Bit of Learning

This is the book that really has me thinking this week — Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking.

Ever-expanding Skill Set

I’ve been working on my Shaelyn Shawl by Leila Raabe.  After knitting almost the entire shawl, I decided that it looked a bit sloppy on size 9 needles.   So I switched to size 6 and began the shawl again.  For this project, I’m using handspun yarn that transitions gradually from pale gray to deep rust.

This week, I completed the Oak Trail cloche by Alana Dakos.  This is a stylish little design and I love the hat.  It’s nice to knit such a great design in worsted weight yarn.  There’s a great little oak leaf design and overall nice fit.  Here you see it blocking on one of my ceramic porch lamps.
