My current projects are a little on the subtle side -- institutional grey shawl, beige sock -- so a just a little **pop** is in order!
First up, this happy package arrived from Morehouse Farms yesterday:
How pretty!! It's the Melody's Shawl pattern and a big hunka hunka burning laceweight Berry Blossom. But can I just mention that the skein I received -- although it's gorgeous and I'm definitely feeling the love -- really looks nothing like the swatch on the website? Oh, the perils of online purchasing.
I also ordered a pattern for the Diamond Fantasy Shawl from Sivia Harding (Thanks Amy, for the link!). I think it'll be great for using up all those precious ends of Koigu I've been hoarding from Charlottes past. Maybe a Christmas present for some lucky person? We'll see,...
OK. How cute are these creatures? Even if I never actually make any of them, just the PROSPECT of making one is enough to make me happy! I'm thinking all those Lamb's Pride, Cascade 220 and Kureyon leftovers will work fabulously.
Happy Weekend everyone!
