Despite being the only driver on this cross-country adventure, I did managed to find a bit of time to knit along the way. Usually it was in the morning (and yes, usually I was sitting in the camper bathroom to keep from waking the kids). But knitting is knitting, I say! No matter where I have to do it.
And so it was that just before we left Maine I cast off my Seaside Wrap.
Knit with a scrumptious silk/Merino blend from Sundara Yarn it is indescribably soft, drapey, and so delicious. I'm wild for this yarn – as well as the clever Sensible Shawl pattern! I've worn it almost every day since I cast it off, and have skipped blocking altogether since that would mean a day or two without my wrap.
The shawl crosses in the front and ties in the back, keeping it clear of hay bales, nibbling goats, and breakfast dishes. (Kudos to Sage for being a good sport and snapping a few photographs of me wearing it!)
The perfect luxurious yet practical wrap for this farm mama.
And yes, I know I just posted this picture a couple of days ago. But I love it so much I think I'll share it twice! And worth noting, I'm not normally a fan of garter stitch but I thought I'd give it a try just this once. It has officially won me over.
What a simple, rewarding project this was!
