I am thoroughly loving this project! The yarn is so soft and springy~a dream to knit with. I think I might just go back to my LYS and buy some more. I also love how it is dyed. The purple hues have depth and are subtle.(doesn't the word 'subtle' look weird today?)
The pattern is the Live Oak Shawlette. I really like how the increasing is being done. Instead of the traditional triangle it is a semi circular design with the increases evenly spaced. Nice. Now I have to chant what I am doing on the increasing row so I do not make a mistake. But I am alone most of the time so who cares if I am chanting?? Maybe some meditation is going on...
The fun part is the chart which I will be starting today :)
The only sadness I am feeling is that I will be giving this gift to my Aunt for Christmas. I so badly would love to keep it but I know she will love it more. And it is a surprise :D
