starting the shetland
On Thursday night, I was feeling pretty unsatisfied with my works-in-progress projects. I'm not accountable to anyone with respect to my knitting, so I decided to start the Shetland Triangle from Wrap Style. I brought the pattern with me on our trip to San Francisco in January, and found the perfect yarn at Artfibers. The design is supposed to resemble a fir cone, but it always struck me as looking like the center of a peacock feather. The bluey-purpley-greeney yarn is a perfect match for my vision of the shawl. I've been going like mad on it (who needs sleep?), and love seeing it grow. It's exactly what I needed right now.
