Rule Britannia!

I've been planning to make a Union Jack pillow for a couple of years. In fact, at the beginning of the summer - last year - I bought the red and blue fabric, and the pillow I was going to use, at the Good Will Bins. Remember the crap-by-the-pound shopping I did?

But, then I just shelved the fabric and used the pillow - as is. Until recently, I've been fine with that. But then the pillow began to shred and I realized it was time. Night before last I pulled out the hoarded fabric and in 30 minutes flat I had my Union Jack.

Why do these simple little things take me so long to accomplish?

It's not a shawl; It's not a scarf; It's a Shawlette!

And, it's lovely.

Made from Merino and Jade (don't ask me how, cause I don't know).

But, it smells a little weird.

Note to self: Don't get wet while wearing it!

2nd Knitting Anniversary!

Two years ago, this week, I decided to try one more time to learn to knit.

This time, it took.

I think it may have saved my life.

This shawlette I started yesterday is knit from the most appropriately named yarn in the world - Therapi. And at $3.00 per skein (on sale from $10.00 per skein) it is the cheapest and most effective therapy in existence.
