Summer light~

"Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It's not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it's when you've had everything to do, and you've done it" Margaret Thatcher Yes...finally...this sweater is completed... I am satisfied... And I can move on... It's been a slow paced summer... and the summer light is falling on this winter shadow. Knit in the round... Kidsilk haze and Blue Moon Socks that rock heavyweight... the exact yarn...a copy all the way... something for me to warm up the chills ahead.. We will be leaving the city flare this Friday...there are lists to make... and packing to do... for 8 days away at the shore... a peaceful place.. where the sound of the tide lulls you to sleep... I will see you later then... refreshed...and hopefully with my shadow in tow...

It IS a beauty! What a combo of yarns ~ that's going to be a delight to wear.

Enjoy your time at the seashore. I'm heading the same way on the same day but probably for a shorter stay.

Enjoy every moment ~ and I suspect that it might be cool enough in the evenings for you to wear a certain new sweater - LOL

The sweater is beautiful! Have a wonderful time!

That completed sweater is a beauty. I agree that there is a grand moment when the knitting's done, the blocking's done, the sewing up and tucking in of all loose threads is done.

Love the expression of loose threads that certainly can apply to more than needlework.

Have a lovely break at the shore.

I'm knitting the exact same shadowbox. In the same yarn too! Thinking it will be the perfect thing this winter.
