Okay first of all, by Saturday my wrist was feeling mostly better, so I got a lot of knitting in over the weekend. I finished the tank top I started at festival. I did revamp it though. I'd charted out a 7 circuit labrynth, but I was having no luck concentrating on following the chart in the heat, so I decided to switch to a nice simple spiral, and leave the labrynth for a future project.
On the needles currently are two easy projects, a magic tube scarf for my favorite monster child and a simple shawl for me. I lucked out on the scarf yarn, getting it for 40% off at Chuchmouse on Saturday. Of course I can't remember the name of it now, but it is the softest fur type yarn I've ever felt.
The shawl is being knit in a simple prairie shawl pattern in Noro Cash Iroha (40% silk, 30% lambswool, 20% cashmere, & 10% nylon) on giant needles to make it all light and fluffy. I had purchased one orphan hank of this on our victoria trip last spring, and it was still sitting in my stash when I lucked out on finding some stock of the same color at Amanda's Art Yarn in Poulsbo on Sunday. I'm envisioning this as a shawl for wrapping over a tank top when it starts to get cold in the evenings.
