Mindless knitting in Cancun

While we were in Mexico I knitted a linen shawl while I read. It was pure, mindless, knitting bliss. Using two skeins of green Sun Drenched Linens by (that I bought several years ago at the Fall Fiber Festival in Virginia) and size 15 Denise needles, I cast on 40 stitches, then knit every row, increasing in the first and last stitch on each row. I did not use all my yarn (each skein had 170 yards), but I came close.

Isn't the front porch rocker a good model? But Marley tried it, too.

I think I'll enjoy using it as a summer shawl.

I'm think of making a shawl with some linen/flax. It's kinda a rough yarn to knit with...but I like the results :o)
