I cast on for the Boneyard shawl on Saturday night. I saw it on Watch Stephen Knit a while back, and then on Ravelry a bit later. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this pattern. I learned how to m1l and m1r, instead of taking the easy way out and doing YOs instead.
I knit the shawl on the bus, I knit the shawl while watching TV, I knit the shawl pretty much every chance I could. I LOVE this pattern!
The yarn is Patons SWS (Soy Wool Solids) in Natural Berry. I bought this yarn from a really cool market when Rick and I went on our road trip. The only downside to this yarn is that it is SUPER splitty, and it sheds a bit. I am hoping once I wash it, some of the extra fibres will come out.
The pattern calls for about 650 yards of a different yarn, but doesn't give a finished size. The way this is going now, I may have enough yarn for two shawls!
In other news, I set everything up for the art show at Phog yesterday. I filled up more of the wall space than I thought I would, and I still have a few things to finish the ends on, and possibly bring in. My other option for those is to bring them into one of the stores I have on the line to sell stuff through. Decisions, decisions.
What have all of you been up to lately?
