Summer Preparations

It’s never too late to be what you might have been. ~ George Eliot

Today is Memorial Day in the States. Many people thank Veterans for their service on today, but it’s really about remembering those that have fallen in the line of duty. I believe that extends to many service professions not just the military. When I was a child, I thought this weekend marked the beginning of summer. It seems only fitting that the British Hubby spent this weekend on a two day training course for our summer vacation plans.

This gave me a chance to catch up on my 1984 podcast and get some knitting done. Introducing May’s second completed wip, Red Spinning Wheel Shawl. This shawl was a delight to knit. If I had used a smaller needle, I could have gotten away with two skeins, but I’m happy with the fabric produced. Of course, that meant using the third skein two rows from the end. I think it would be lovely in a lighter weight yarn especially as a gift. This makes my seventh finished project from Malabrigo March! This was my first time using Rueca. I wasn’t sure about the thick and thin bits in this base, but it was rather enjoyable to knit with.

Two projects completed and six more to go! I’m not sure I’m going to get eight this month, but maybe there’s another finished project or two yet this month. Stay tuned!
