I finally found a little bit of time earlier today to work a few more leaves on my Leftie shawl by Martina Behm. This is one fun shawl. I have seven leaves done to be exact. I am weaving in the ends as I go, as that works better for me in the end.
Leftie is just so much fun. If you are even thinking about it, you should give it a go. What a great pattern. Leftie is more compelling than the Hitchhiker for me, maybe it's the color changes. Who knows.

I am using a US size 1 or 2.5mm needle. The shawl is one where a slightly tighter gauge looks good. It shows off the beautiful garter stitch and leaves better. I probably won't block this too strenuously in the end because I love the way it looks now.
That's it for today. The photo isn't the best as the sun is going down but I was too excited not to share.
I'll be back soon with more! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. The weather around here has been beautiful lately.
