{this moment}

{this moment} - a friday ritual.  a single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week.  a simple, special, extraordinary moment.  a moment i want to pause, savor and remember.  this feature is inspired by soulemama.

if you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your "moment" in the comments for all to find and see.

i finished my earth and sky shawl, knit with 31G wexford merino silk in you are my sunshine and coordinating YAMS green and purple.  i knit it with size 7 needles.  becos i knitted with a worsted weight yarn instead of a fingering as suggested by the pattern, my shawl is holy hanna hyuge!!  and when i wet blocked it, i swear it doubled in width.

i was afraid to soak my shawl becos i loved the softness of the yarn, but i'm happy to report that the shawl retained its squishable softness.  and look at those colors.

i sewed a tiny pewter butterfly to the underside cast off end.  whenever i see two butterflies dancing, i think of ani and mac.

this shawl is so cuddly and warm.  it's the perfect comfort shawl for me.

i am so grateful for three irish girls for making this yarn a possibility.  i am so sorry for the reasoning behind the creation of YAMS and last year's glimpse, but whenever i see this shawl, and petunia's shawl, and when i come across my YAMS adorn and glimpse springvale sock, i remember ani and mac, and charlie for whom the yarn was dedicated to.
