The joy of a new project

For me it starts when I receive the notification that my parcel has been left “in a safe place”. The thrill of opening my package and smelling that yarn for the first time is pure joy.

I received a package from Yarn and Co last week, and due to the sudden desire to start spring cleaning, I am only getting around to winding my skeins tonight.

Inga who is Knitting Traditions is having a Rustic Knitalong and I’m planning on knitting Journeycake Sontag Shawl by Louise Bollano. You can find it as a free pattern on Ravelry. It’s a garter stitch triangle shaped shawl with a scalloped crochet edge. The pattern has been inspired by the Outlander series. My yarn of choice is Cascade 220 Heather in the Silver grey and Summer sky colourways. I cannot remember the last time I knit with this yarn, but I’m loving the feel of it.

I hope Monday has been kind to you.
