Green and Pink in the Park

Fantastic weather calls for knitting in the park. Stealing moments from work to sit near Pond. Making progress on my Brooke’s Column of Leaves in sea wool color moss. The trouble with lace that it looks sort of crumpled until blocked, and one needs tremendous faith. This was taken this morning, and since the 2 hours of Lost, its somewhat longer. I will knit to the end of the skein. I made this a double column, so it does not knit up very fast. I wonder how much it will stretch. Anyone else knitting with sea wool at the moment?

Lucky you with your weather- we are forecast rain and very cold weather over this next holiday weekend.

I love the colour of your Seawool. I've just received 3 skeins in different colours and I'm going to start with (unsurprisingly) a pair of socks.

It feels lovely and I think it will be one of my favourites.

You really can do colour and season, you know? That pink shirt is perfect early summer surrounded by green and dappled sunlight. Sez I surrounded by grey, white, mess and computer :-/

I'm envious. I think I'll have to knit some socks that colour.

I'm loving the colour of that scarf! I'm also thinking I should trade in my LazyBoy for a pond and a bridge. :-)

What a stunning location to sit and knit! I'm loveing the colours of that Seawool - it sounds yummy! I somehow think that sitting in Birkenhead's Park (which Central Park was based on - or so it's said locally) would have quite the same appeal, or such lovely looking weather! Cant wait to see how the scarf blocks!

Thanks for your congratulations and for the ideas of when to wear the shawl. I think I will wear it as often as I want--regardless of what I am wearing. Your scarf looks fabulous--great color. I have the same color in a laceweight for another shawl. Now, I just need to decide on which shawl......
