Sweet, Sweet Mystery…

It was a joy to knit.  I love Romi’s attention to detail!  Her charts are sheer perfection!

I made this with Yankee Dyer Yarns, Yankee Sole II in Chap My Khaki’s and Chai   Latte and I dyed them myself.

Do you see the Owls peeking out at you! What a fabulous addition to the design.  And then the bind off.

Pretty Picots add the perfect balance for this shawl.  I loved knitting in as well as blocking it because nothing beats the magic of blocking!

If you haven’t experienced a Romi design, please do treat yourself.  It’s such a great journey!

If you like these colors and are thinking you might like to make one, please visit my shop, The Yankee Dyer, and I will hook you up!

I am wearing this Object of Affection to a wedding at the end of June. Perfect for a late day, outdoor wedding.

In other news, we are up to our neck in basil.  I see lots of pesto in my future.

Did you know that you can make the pesto and freeze it in ice cube trays and use it all winter. I throw it in homemade spaghetti sauce, meatloaf and toss with veggies.

Have a wonderful and happy weekend!  See you next week!

Best,

Michele

Clue #3……Complete!

I love the pure genius in what is going on with this Mystery shawl with Rosemary (Romi) Hill.  The texture is off the hook and having good yarn helps.  I have been knitting like a crazy person and I am pleased to present the fruits of my labors, which is just fancy for, I gave up everything except eating and bathing for this baby!

Look at those darling Owls peeking out at you!  I was happy to be able to finish this early so that I could have a couple of days to catch up on my other stuff like laundry and such.

Clue #4 comes out tomorrow and I hope that there are more Owls.

Have a wonderful Thursday!  Next blog post will be about the dye pots.
