feeling lazy (katy)

Today kind of felt like summer, so I thought I’d share an FO from July (!!):

Lazy Katy

This is my Lazy Katy Shawl, designed by Birgit Freyer.

Lazy Katy

It’s knit with pretty much a whole skein of Lang Yarns Jawoll Magic Dégradé in colorway 85.0059.

I liked the yarn and loved the colors, but was irritated by the fact that the yarn had broken at the factory, and a knot had been tied, breaking the color patterning. I should have done something about it, but I literally just shoved the tied bit to the back of the piece and kept going. By the time I realized that was a dumb thing to have done, it was inches later and I decided I could live with it.

I cast on back in April and finished it up as part of my Tour de France knitalong on July 26. (I particularly love the lacy edging.)


The photos are from my parents’ garden, which is truly spectacular in the summertime.

Now I just need the weather to feel more like November so I want to wear a wool shawl!
