brr...

After that flurry of finishing projects, I had to take a little break. Planning Christmas presents has been on the forefront of my knitting thinking, and I purchased one skein of yarn to make a little shawl for my grandmother.

I like the colors of this, and it's my first Dream in Color yarn. I made the corrections in the pattern (which will be the Diamonds and Pearls Shawl from the Knitter's Book of Yarn), and just need to wind the skein.

However, I'm really tempted to make myself a neckwarmer, because it's been cold cold cold here in Portland. I'm typing with gloves on, in fact. I have tons of scarves, of course, but the ends tend to get in the way while I'm doing dishes, etc. I have the yarn... and the chilly neck... and plenty of time before Christmas...

One of my favorite yarns! Love the color. Thinking of you a lot as I prep for Rhinebeck - looking through patterns in my Ravelry queue and books to figure out what to get (but of course will buy way more than I could ever use anyway)! Won't be the same without you.

Those Dream in Color ladies really know how to combine colors with a perfect base yarn. It's beautiful.

At least a neckwarmer won't take as long to knit as a scarf. Go for it!
