7 Small Shawls: T - 44 days and counting down.
First, an admission: I am not feeling the love for the entrelac shawl idea I was toying with before. It's going to have to wait for next year (did you hear that the 10 shawls in 2010 people are doing 11 in 2011?!?!). Because right now, my entrelac is ugly and I want to knit a fun fluffy bonbon of a knit.
So I took the gorgeous green (because my knitted bonbons are all green) yarns that Kristine sent me: Creating in The French Monk's Finest and Magic Bean (possibly my very favorite yarn color of all time) and started playing with things that I love.
Like stripes in garter stitch.
And interesting constructions.
And now I'm irreversibly, irretrievably in love.
Totally head over heels with shawl #5. I am having such a grand time with this yarn and pattern combination! And I so needed this: a thoroughly relaxing knit that I can barely stand to put down. A busman's holiday of sorts. Because really? I so love what I do for a living.
