I'm using the 100% silk DK weight yarn that I reviewed. I really like this yarn....A LOT. I also really like this pattern a lot. Although I totally missed reading a portion, and skipped part of the shawl....absolutely my fault, I soldiered on, and so far, I'm happy with the results. Here is my Ravelry Project Page. I'm much further along than what is in this picture, but I really wanted to show off the yarn a bit.
I was making fabulous progress on my Granny Stripe Monster Blanket, but now that it's quite large, it's relegated as a "couch" project. AKA, I can only work on it while I'm at home, sitting on my tokhes. I don't have any new pictures yet, but it's about twice the size as the last time I posted. It's at about 600g of yarn and 1000 yards. You can view more details here and here.
My son, Ethan, is now 3.75 months old and time is flying past. I try and live in the moment, but life can be very distracting, especially when you are sleep deprived and cranky.
Here he is, in all his 3-month-old glory.
Lastly, I've joined Goodreads, so come check me out over there. I read a whole lot slower now (the baby udpate slows down my hard drive), but I like this site, as well as Shelfari, to keep track of my books. I will probably decommission my shelfari site, as I find it difficult to navigate, but I like how it keeps track of anthologies, so we shall see.
I'll be back soon to update my hair experiment, show off my hopefully, completed Ishbel, and maybe, share a free pattern.
