First of all, thank you to everyone for your very kind comments about my last post! They meant a lot to me.
And now for more knitting, and weather chat. Our summer has continued to be cool, even for Scotland. Mostly we’ve had temperatures between 8 and 16C / in the 50s F. Two nights ago, it got down 2C / 36F in Tyndrum, in the Highlands. That same night, Edinburgh had the lowest July temperature ever recorded in Scotland. And as I write, it is raining… So it’s just as well that I can have sunshine in knitted form!
In the above photo, you can just about see that it has small beads incorporated into the lace border. (The neighbours must wonder why I occasionally come tearing out of the house, throw knitted garments onto the rose bushes, and start taking photos…)
Michael took a photo of me modelling it on Sunday afternoon, when the weather was pretty nice:
Full details, if you’re interested, are on Ravelry here.
It was a fun project to make, and once again I say: thank goodness for knitting! I hope you are all having a very enjoyable weekend.
