Finally... some knitting.

Despite all of the other content of this blog as of late, I have been doing some knitting. Sometimes just a couple of rows each night, sometimes a bit more.

Way back in February, after finishing these hats, I started knitting yet another Simple Yet Effective Shawl using Noro Kureyon Sock for no other reason but to use up a skein of yarn. It was simple, mindless knitting. And I enjoyed every second of it.

I don't know what I'll do with it, or who I'll give it to, but I like it. Maybe I'll just keep it.

Simple Yet Effective 03

The specifics:
Pattern: Simple Yet Effective Shawl (Ravelry Link)
Yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock, Color S180
Needles: US 5

I just love the color changes on Noro. This isn't really "my colors," but I still love it. The funny thing about knitting with Noro is that when you do the first couple of changes you really aren't sure, and then a few colors later it really comes together.

Can I just say I love that your books are arranged by color? I think it looks amazing, and wish the part of my brain that needs books by subject/author/height would ease up.

I love how your books are arranged, too. Beautiful shawl! Great idea! I have some lovely sock yarns I could burn through ....

It took everything I had to resist the temptation to arrange these books by subject and height. As you can see, it is a work in progress as we donated most of our books when we moved and I still have lots at my parents.

But if you look on flickr, there are some amazing bookshelves arranged by color that are inspiring.
