Business with pleasure

My first day of real vacation has been a nice mixture of business and pleasure, both activity-wise and weather-wise. The morning started sunny and I went for a run. In the afternoon the rain came pouring down and I did a little cleaning. In between running and cleaning I’ve made good progress on my latest shawl.

It has the perfect grain color and I assume that’s why it feels so summer-y despite it being, well, beige. It also has a red stripe, not unlike my tank top. The edge lace is really wide though so it takes some time. I think this shawl will look good together with the tank top. All will come together in just a few days.
