More Hope and Breathe

I still need to weave in ends (if I have a tombstone, this will be on my tombstone). I photographed this on the new shelves inour bedroom





I like it.

I have cast on for a new project. It's the Asbury Park shawl and it has BEADS! It's early days so more on this soon. There is also a wrap with two colors. So far I like this pattern a lot--more engaging and lots of changes.

I'm also playing yarn chicken with the moon shawl. I"m on the dark purple color and  there are now about 450 stitches on the needle and I have 12 rows to go and I'm not sure there will be enough yarn there. I'm heading to Eugene tomorrow and will dig around to see if I can find one more skein of this purple color so I'm not freaking out. 

Hopefully it will be ok. 




Yesterday I mowed the lawn and read and knit. Our soon-to-be new neighbors Jackson and CJ came by for social distance cocktail hour--they're building a house a few houses down from us. Today the weather is foggy and damp, typical beach weather!

Tomorrow I see Mana! I pronounce her name Mah-nuh with soft vowels.

Beautiful shawl results going on! Wow, they are beautiful. But the moon shawl is the most unusual-wow!

I love the little pink "specks" in your Hope and Breathe. The whole thing is lovely -- but those little "specks" just make it sing. :-) And I hate that stressed feeling of not knowing whether you'll make it with our yarn. (So often, I'm a big loser when it comes to yarn chicken. It makes me . . . creative.) Keeping my fingers crossed for you.
