While away I started a simple, stocking stitch shrug. The pattern is from Prima and available free here. I am using some stash Rowan Cashsoft DK, that I bought on sale but did not like the colour (a really DUSTY rose). I dyed it to burgundy and denim a few months ago and was waiting to find the right project for it. This cropped cardigan will be great for the airconditioning of the office, and will work over tank tops.
The hotel we stayed at happened to be the meeting place for a convoy of Model T cars... we arrived to find the parking lot FULL of these! There were about 40 cars and all the owners were meeting there and starting a long vacation together, touring around New York state together and staying at different towns every night! What a sight to see, and the sound of them starting up in the morning, ruh, ruh, ruh, putter, putter, putter, rumble... with the struggle of the engine and the cool horns to announce the start of the parade.
