Spring is sprunging in Montreal this week. It's about a month ahead of schedule, but hey, I won't complain. I've been wearing my lovely Spring coat, have bid a fond farewell to my winter boots (but they'll be back...), and today I had my first Haagen Dazs ice cream bar of 2010. Oh yeah!
The switcheroo to DST time also means that it's still light when I get home from work, and thus can take pictures for the blog (OK, PHIL can take pictures of ME for the blog, heh)! I give you my recently completed Milkweed Shawl :
Knit with Handmaiden Casbah sock yarn (HAH! How ANYONE can call this sock yarn is beyond me, but that's another matter entirely) in the Pansy colourway, this project was a gem from start to finish.
There's just something about this type of project that tickles my fancy. I guess I can't get over the fact that you can wind up with a pretty friggin' fantastic piece of neck fashion with a pattern that starts simply with "cast on 7 stitches".
I'd say the only "bad" thing about this project is that it didn't use up the entire skein of Casbah, and I hate to leave any of that scrumptious, delicious yarn to waste. Any suggestions for a project that would require roughly 55 yards or less?
Happy Knitting Everyone!
