Shawl progress

As I showed at the end of my summer vacation post, I didn’t get a lot of knitting done this summer.

That trend has continued.  There has been progress made on the shawl I started at the beginning of July, but it has been very slow.  Now the cooler, wetter fall is upon us, I think that it will speed up a lot.

I am enjoying every stitch of this shawl.

Technically the name of the pattern is Aether, but In my head, as I knit, I’m calling it golden garter.  Alliteration improves everything, right?

The yarn changes color with the time of day and the changing lighting.  The yarn is Tosh merino light, in the colorway Nutmeg.  In the morning sun it was bright and gold.  Tonight by lamp light it is dark honey.

Five of seven repeats are done, as is the first skein.  It has become clear that this is going to be a really big shawl when it is blocked!
