I spun some more yarn. I’ve been doing a lot of spinning these days, that is for sure. This was a batt from bohoknitterchic on etsy. It is really fluffy. Like the towels that have been softened in a bounce commerical. Just a simple bulky two ply in all the colours.

Other than that I have been consumed with a need to finish a Color Affection shawl. I am halfway through the third section and I really can’t wait to finish it so I can wear it. I have been knitting on it like crazy. It’s a great pattern, simple colour changes and shortrows that anyone could tackle. I am possibly considering another, but I need to finish other things first. I am using Malabrigo Arroyo in Borraja, Chircas and Escoria. I am digging it. My goal is to finish it and my Kidsilk Haze Stripe scarf this week. I just finished picking up a dropped stitch about 30 rows down. Ugh. We’ll see. I love the colour palette in Arroyo. We got a bunch in at the store the other day and there was not a single colour I did not like. Even the reddy/pinky/orange ones..

  • I have just cast on a Color Affection Shawl and I love it. I especially lover that I yarn in stash for it. I’ve an awful feeling this pattern will prove addictive. I’m already mentally matching colours.
