A Better Picture

Between work lunches, and a trip to the car dealership, and a trip to the orthodontist, Miss Marja’s Lintilla has gotten a little more work, and since it came home with me, it also got a decent photo.

One where you can actually see the colors as they are. If this shawl were at home, I’d probably never stop working on it. I love it. The color blending is fantastic, and it never ceases to interest me.

Plus, I just REALLY LOVE knitting the Lintilla pattern.

As mentioned previously, the small skein of chain plied yarn that matches this shawl is going into my crazy marled mystery shawl. New clue out tomorrow! All I have to do is choose which yarn to pair with it, which I don’t think I’ll bother to do until I actually get the clue and see what I am up against. For the clue that particular yarn goes into, for consistency, I won’t be counting yardage, because it’s “New Yarn.” I only get to count the yards from the yarn paired with it. Can you tell I am really enjoying making up pointless rules for my pointless game? Hah.

In the meantime, I worked my way into the 5th color on the Find Your Fade shawl. It’s not completely worked in yet, I am still alternating with the 4th color. But, I am close, as was my hope!

There’s a pokemon go event going on right now as well, plus a nests change, which should seriously inspire Miss Butterfly and I to get outdoors and walking around. We’ll have to do so tonight, as it’s going to rain all day Friday, according to forecasts.

Are you looking forward to the weekend as much as I am?

    • Oh yes. The catching up on sleep may be the best thing about the weekends. Sometimes I get so excited to not be at work that I wake up early anyhow. But then there’s always a nice nap to make up for that!

  1. love that shawl you are knitting with Miss Marja’s yarn. Just having to imagine Fade, I guess… lol … and curious about the next clue of Marled as well. So much prettiness going on at your house. And rain. Rain. Oh how I would love some rain. The kind that soaks into the ground and doesn’t freeze, lol.
    Yes, I can’t wait for the weekend. I might have to work on Saturday afternoon, but whether or not I do that, I have Monday off, and I can’t WAIT!

    • Now I KNOW you are working way too hard right now! I posted the find your fade the day before this post, but I think it may have skipped out of your line of sight! The rain did come through, it was pouring when I woke up, that good soaking type rain that makes you want to just stay in bed all day. I am hoping it continues.
      So glad to hear you get a long weekend! It’ll feel much better working on Saturday when you get to keep Monday off.

      • I missed it! I will go search for it. I just found out I get the long weekend, and I don’t have to work on Saturday, and still they will owe me a couple of hours. Life is good. 🙂
