Wednesday's Yarns - Project Peace and Western Romances

     I'm still working on my Project Peace Shawl, a December project.  (My project page with details - Ripples of Peace Shawl.)  It's done up in Malabrigo Silky Merino in Mares (the darker) and Azules.  I've been working on the end lace pattern and I'm really pleased with the results.  It looks like worn denim and it's as if the end lace piece is just worn more.  It'll be beautiful with any jeans.

     I'm rereading a series I enjoyed years ago, The McKettrick Series by Linda Lael Miller.  Her western romances are one of the best.  I started with McKettrick's Heart because it was a BookBub deal and I forgot I had read it!  It wasn't until the end that I vaguely recalled the book but it was a pleasure to revisit the McKettrick's stories.  I've gone on to McKettrick's Luck and I am realizing Linda Lael Miller just has a wonderful style of writing.  Immediately drawing you in and creating believable characters.  I'm planning to head to my favorite used bookshop on Friday to find copies of these older books.  I have tons of credit because I always turn in my romance novels for credit (keeping my more treasured books in my bookcase).

Come Join Us at Unraveled Wednesday


  1. Oh wow! I really love your Peace Knitting! The colors are perfect!

  2. That yarn + that pattern = I want to make that

  3. It is stockinette right? Im ready for a non garter stitch shawl....

    1. Most of it is stockinette and I was thinking yesterday how soft it is where the stockinette is. It's divided by ridges and then a simple lace pattern is at the end (which is also lots of stockinette mixed with one row of knit together, yo's and simple stitches). Enjoy!

  4. I love that shawl. Such a perfect and practical color!
