life with a chronic disease and a really big yarn stash
MacKenzie Speaks: Finished Objects
Hi. I’m MacKenzie.
It is snowing outside today and the Mother of Cats and I have been working on her plants and have started some new knitting projects. I can’t wait to tell you all about what we have been up to.
After a nap.
And some cookies!
Notes from the Mother of Cats:
The first shawl is called Color Study and it is knitted with two different yarns from Western Sky Knits. This is the softest shawl that I now own; the knitted fabric is just fabulous! You can find my project notes here.
The Christmas colored shawl is another Close to You and the yarn is made from Brew City Premium Draft Sock in the colorway “Silver Bells” . Fast, easy, simple pattern that I’m love wearing for a little warmth in the cold weather. My project notes are here.
These two projects used up 3 skeins of yarn. Only 47 left to meet my goal for the year.
I weave, knit and read in Aurora, Colorado where my garden lives. I have 2 sons, a knitting daughter-in-law, a grandson and two exceptionally spoiled kittens. In 2014 I was diagnosed with a serious rare autoimmune disease called systemic sclerosis along with Sjogren's Disease and fibromyalgia.

I suppose if MacKenzie had one of his own he wouldn’t use it
Oh, he would use it! I’m thinking that he needs another blanket made from the left overs.
So productive! Love the Close To You shawl in a skein of Christmas yarn!! I have knit that pattern and enjoyed it. I think it is brilliant in that skein of Christmas yarn. I am going to have to copy you! Think it would also make fun holiday gifts🙂
I am also thinking that the shawl would make nice Christmas presents. Now that I understand this pattern a little better I’m wondering if I can adapt another lace pattern to make a similar design for a solid colored yarn.
Like your color study. I have yet to wear mine, as I do not like my color choice. Probably never will were it.
I ripped out the wild colored one that I first started using the kit I bought at the booth and am much happier with this one as I’ll get more wear out of it. I’m kind of wondering if I should make another…
MacKenzie: Why would you knead the shawl when there is furniture in need of a fluffing:)
The shawls are lovely!
Your shawls look great, and well done on your progress in using up your yarn!
I love the you finished a Christmas colored project. Love it. You are ahead of the 2019 curve if you ask me!
