The most interesting thing, to me, about knitting is that there is always something new to learn. I am learning how to knit on an edging - knitting it onto the center panel of current shawl. Even after reading through the instructions several times, it still turned into blind following for the first few rows until I got my brain and hands around the technique. I am still intrigued by the construction of lace, so this shawl - dull brown though it be - is still interesting. So far.

What is it with the brown lately? Almost all my shoes are black. Most of my purses for the last 20 years have been black. I bought a new pair of sandals and they are brown. Since Heizen nibbled my old black purse until change was falling out of the bottom, I also bought a new purse. Brown strap and trim with a cloth body. And this latest shawl is brown. After the late seventies, I vowed never to wear brown and/or rust ever again. And here I am spinning brown yarn and wearing brown shoes.

The runtling lives still.
