  • It’s always a treat to see a new MDK blog.
    That is a pretty stunning shawl! Swoopy and dense all at the same time.
    You know we would love to see the thousand-shade sweater. That sounds divine.
    And school! No way. Labour Day or bust, as we say around here.

  • Maybe it’s just how it shows up on my device, but the mottled, worn-looking ness of that yarn in a cashmere blend…well, I’m swooning.

  • what a lovely blue!

  • The shawl is gorgeous, both in construction and color. I can only imagine how luscious it must feel.
    I can relate to your difficulty in keeping track of repeating certain rows. I’ve just finished a shawl and discovered, when I laid it out to block, that I’d clearly lost track of increases along the way. Instead of nice smooth lines, there are zig-zags — the road less taken, perhaps?
    Not starting school here in Boston until Sept. 3. Grateful for that.

  • Love the knitting. Love the depth of color and the wonderful garter stitch. Especially love that you are back.

  • Oh, gorgeous. i am swooning too! and not just because summer is *this close* to being over!

  • Beautiful shawl! Now I want one. Look what you’ve done! And I’m usually set to symmetrical, too.

  • Well now I’m a little sorry I took so much time off from twitter. I would have enjoyed Daily Mushrooms.
    And the colors in that yarn are gorgeous, as is the project.

  • Oh! This is aboslutely unexpected Ann! What a treasure. I am aboslutely surprised and delighted to find out you made and Imagine When, I am sorry it gave you the headaches!
    And girls, you have to come down here to Argentina. You will love it here! I’ll be waiting for you at my doorstep.
    Love,
    Joji

  • Thank you for the posting, Ann. I love hearing from you and Kay. The shawl is just lovely. Beautiful work!

  • Love the phrase ‘snack knitting.’ I started the Mitered Crosses for Japan blanket as my portable project, but will refer to it as my snack knitting from now on.

  • Ditto annhb.

  • that blue is the most beautiful and I love the shawl!

  • Beautiful beautiful blue. Also love the simple complexity (complex simplicity?) of the shawl quietly going different directions.

  • Holy cow, what a beautiful pattern! If I weren’t at work I’d be clicking the “buy” button right now!
    I’m sure I’m dating myself right now but school starts the day after Labor Day and not a day sooner. There’s something so wrong about going back to school in August.

  • I have Imagine When on the needles in Sundara’s lovely merino silk in Sky thru the Cedars, a lovely mix of greens with shots of clear blue. Great yarn, great pattern. Glad (sorry) to here I’m not the only one having trouble memorizing the exact pattern.

  • That is one gorgeous shawl, and I call tag-along dibs if you make a trip down to see Joji in Argentina 🙂
    PS really back to school ALREADY??!!!!

  • You’re very clever!! Good job!

  • Ha Ha!! I love the shawl and love the color.. How deep and rich it looks..
    I am laughing because that is exactly what I did…twice! Dropped at her doorstep!!
    Was on a cruise to BA and found out about the yarn district and went with a few of women.. the first time I was a novice and Joji helped us out.. but I had no idea who she was, other than a very lovely woman who knew yarn, knitting and spoke English.. BUT… the second time I went.. this time I brought with me over 10 women and thank God Joji was there.. because this time I knew exactly who she was.. Felt like I was in the presence of royalty.. I can vouch that Joji is one of the sweetest well versed in all things knitting and helpful women around.. I can’t wait to make that trip again!!

  • It looks like a lovely shawl to me.
    I get the Sundara emails, but I have only a single skein of her yarn. It’s like I’ve been stalking them for years and am always too late.
