I'm knitting away on a garter stitch shawl that I took with me on our recent trip to Kansas City. Absolutely perfect travel knitting...no counting, no pattern, no thinking:)
This one is the Vintage Sall by Raina K. It's a beautiful crescent shaped shawl with a knitted on lace border. I'll be on the garter stitch for a while, since I'm not in any hurry.
But I am loving this color...Nectar.
Especially since we've had so many cloudy and rainy days recently. (Actually, it's been a very rainy and wet year. According to my phone, we've had more rain than the Pacific Northwest this year!)
Anyway, this lovely color is making me smile. A gentle peachy-pinky-salmony kind of color with a lovely fuzz thanks to the Everlasting Sock Yarn I'm using.
Do you gravitate toward certain colors when the weather is gloomy?
Do you have a favorite travel project?

I'm Robin, the dyer and designer behind October House. You've found my blog, where I ramble on about yarn and knitting, stitching and sewing and anything else that catches my fancy!
I love quiet colors, gentle stitches and making things by hand.
