I'll Have Another Order of Purple Milk Please

Can you smell the crispness in the air? Do you know what that means? Do you know why Mother Nature is gently nudging us towards our jackets and hats once again?

She wants us to know THAT CHRISTMAS IS COMING HOLY SMOKES GET KNITTING!

So, I did. Er, I am.

I recently cast off a Christmas gift and am feeling pretty good about myself. Too bad I made a list this week of everyone I intend to knit for- I'm so hilarious sometimes. The list was absolutely laughable. I'll be lucky to get a pair of chunky socks done.


Well, at least I can feel good in knowing that there will be at least one lovingly handknit item under the tree from me. (For a certain VERY loved one who just purchased purple glasses- the colour was choice was very intentional).

What is it? I hear you ask.

Look familiar?

I bet it does!

Because you saw it here not so long ago! (I'm getting pretty boring and predictable, aren't I?)



Details please.

Pattern- Milkweed Shawl by Laura Chau
Yarn- Tosh Sock
Needles- 3.5 mm

Thank you.


Happy Fall.
Flowers for all to match the shawl.

(Did I just leave you with a rhyme there!?!?!? I DID!)

Lynn! I found you. I too have made a Christmas list and I thought it was perfectly reasonable... and then I added to it. And then I told the Boy's mom about it, and she thought it was a lovely idea and is quite looking forward to her handknit socks too. Uh... you weren't on my list. Awkward. I guess I'll put down that wrap I was doing for myself and get yet another pair of socks going. My list is quickly becoming laughable as well!

I have to finish two sweaters first! And I just started a new job! I see skeins of wool with a note/pattern attached in my Christmas boxes......

Where's the "like" button for this gorgeous shawl. A certain person with purple glasses will LOVE it!
