Almost Off The Needles

After a late-night knitting binge, my Oak Park is almost ready to come off of my needles. I hope to finish it today and get it ready for blocking.

I’m going to miss knitting it! The cashmere yarn is like knitting with butter. But since I’ll get to keep it wrapped around my neck as soon as the weather cools off, that will be some compensation.

The cashmere is remarkably light weight for a shawl knit from worsted yarn. And the color is perfect with my wardrobe, since I wear a lot of black. This may just be my favorite knit of all time.

  1. This was such a great knit for me out of lodge worsted I can only imagine it in cashmere! I’m so glad you enjoyed the process and will absolutely enjoy the FO! I too love your color choice. I agree you’ll get a lot of wear out of it.

  2. Thank you so much for all of the encouragement!  I really liked knitting this and am thinking about doing another as a Christmas present for my assistant (who Im pretty sure doesnt read my blog, so she wont see this).
