7 Small Shawls: T - 15 days and counting down.

Can I just tell you that this yarn is the most absolutely sumptuous, decadent, deliciously red and soft material ever known to human kind?
Wow. Forbidden City is an incredibly fitting name, isn't it?
It's like a wonderful book that you don't want to put down, but you also don't want to finish. Except that it's better because, last time I checked, books were decidedly not soft.

Between bouts of stroking intervals of knitting, I've been trying to decide on another color combination for the small size of Madame X (did you guess her name yet?!).

There's contrasty.
And not so contrasty.
I have a bag of thirteen 50 gram skeins of Koigu won earlier this year at the San Francisco Ravelry meet-up, and I've been playing with color combinations. I favor the speckled yarn for the lace section. Someone else favors it, as well. Notice that she went for the green? A gal after my own heart. :)
I do love my green.
And a more intimate view of yarniness.
I feel like a voyeur.

It's so difficult to decide! But I think it's got to be something other than green this time. I mean, really. How much green can one person knit?

Don't answer that.
