I’ve been in a bit of a slump recently, craftwise. I haven’t created anything from scratch lately. However, I have been diligently plugging along on my Arcadia Shawl by Dawn Barker of Chasing Rabbits Fiber. I wanted to finish it in time to wear it out this spring, but as today’s forecast is for a high of 81ºF, I may have missed the boat on that. However, this is Wisconsin, so it’s anyone’s guess if it’s going to stay warm (and humid, ugh) or go back to sweater weather next week.
Anyhoo, I really like this pattern. It’s all garter stitch, which is my speed right now. I’ve mentioned elsewhere that my toddler has stopped taking naps regularly, so my main chunk of crafting time is gone. Yes, I could stay up late, but, well, I’m old and tired. So, so tired.
I’ll post details here of the yarns I used and photos when I’m done. In the meantime, you can follow my Instagram account @bigfatdragoncrafts to see progress updates.
