Paris Mill

Deadlines do funny things to my head. When my brain is forced to come up with something, it decides to meander off and do other things. This is one of those other things. IMG_4420

Another funny thing - I get my best pattern names from street names. Paris Mill is the name of a street. And I felt like the little diagonal columns looked neighborhoods on a map, full of little orderly cul-de-sacs and straight throughs.

I have to tell you, this shawlette practically knit itself. It *flew* off the needles. Part of that is that sideways construction just comes naturally to me. But the other part of that is that Jitterbug is my first true yarn love. It was my very first must-have yarn and it's still my favorite. And this red color is my all time hands down most beloved ever. It took a lot for me to finally break into this skein. I've had it for years!
