Stitching Status: Knitting Away

Here’s what has been happening in my neck of the knitting world…

I finished another tiny baby sweater over the weekend to give to my friend Kimberly. I’ll do a full post next week on this with the cute details. I knit a lot of this in the car surprisingly.

Much to my surprise, I’m knitting a shawl! I’ve been mildly obsessed with photos of Waiting for Rain but didn’t buy it because it was fingering weight. So when the designer released a dk weight version, the Rain Outside I immediately threw it in my cart, pulled yarn out of my stash and I’ve been working on it non-stop. I have been trying to take pictures as I go along because I really love how this is constructed. I can’t wait to share more. There are other things I could be working on right now but I choose this and I’m loving it. I think it will be going to one of my aunts when I’m finished.

And this weekend is the PanCan PurpleStride walk in DC for pancreatic cancer. My sisters, husband and I are walking it this year so I have spent the last week working up t-shirts to honor Dad. The first time we ever participated in this walk, Dad was there as a survivor so it’s a little sad to walk without him. I have probably fussed over this design and creation of a t-shirt more than I should but it’s for my Dad so it had to be right.

So that’s what’s been happening in my world. What’s new with you?

  1. I can’t wait to see The Rain Outside. It’s such a cool looking design!

    Good luck with the walk this weekend! I’m sure your dad would be super proud that you’re all walking in his honor. ❤

  2. Prayers for you and your family as you participate ‘in memoriam’ in this weekend’s event! 🙂

  3. Thinking of you as you prepare for the weekend. The tees are beautiful! So glad for you that you have each other as you walk through this tender time.

  4. I lost a friend to pancreatic cancer some ten years ago, and it’s still hard. Glad you have a way to honour your father and help further research to find a cure.
