Ambleside Shawl - Almost Finished!
I'm almost finished knitting the Ambleside Shawl that I started this past month using this beautiful Noro Cashmere Island wool. The knitting of the shawl is completely finished! I still have to block the shawl and weave in the ends. I have never blocked anything in the past so this is entirely new to me. Sweaters I have made in the past were using acrylic yarn, and the other items I have made out of wool have been smaller winter wear creations. I will post the final results hopefully modeling the shawl very soon (even though summer is a little bit warm to be wearing a shawl...I won't be able to truly enjoy this until the Fall!)
I also picked some fresh veggies from the garden today! The hot banana peppers and cayenne peppers will be used in tonight's stir fry dinner. The tiny vine tomatoes and the other cherry tomatoes are being saved to make bruschetta - within the next couple of days, there will be more ripened tomatoes to pick which will surely make enough!
