So I had plans of using my handspun merino for this shawl. I got it on the needles and I was loving the pattern and yarn, but I couldn't help but thinking of another project I thought the yarn would be so much better for. So I set it aside and picked up a skein of Cascade Heritage sock yarn. I very rarely buy yarn without a plan and this yarn I had bought because I loved the color. I figured for only $12.00 a skein of 437 yards I'd buy two and find something to make with it. It has been sitting next to my computer waiting to be knit it. I started the shawl over with this yarn on Saturday night and by Sunday at noon I was done with all the repeats from the chart and ready for the edging. Talk about a pattern that flies off your needles.
I am loving the rows of purling and knitting! Lace with rows of knitting sign me up any day. I still have the other skein of yarn so I'm going to keep going until I run out of yarn. I think this would be nice to be able to wrap around and around. We'll see. But I did set it aside and picked up another project. Two projects at the same time. Yikes! That is so not me, but I really need some hand knits to wear in this warmer weather. So I casted on a top. I'll be picking away on the Shetland Triangle over the next week. But I'm not rushing it. It is such a joy to knit.
