Have you heard?
There is a great little Knit-A-Long being hosted by Sarah at Crafts from the Cwtch! The item we are all knitting is a shawl, but not all the same one. We have all picked a favorite from a designer named Bev who goes by Boo Knits on Ravlery. Her patterns are gorgeous.
You know what else? Instead of waiting till the end of the KAL to give out prizes, there are prizes drawn this Friday just for signing up!
I love that whole instant gratification thing!

You know you want to!
So, since I only have about 4 wips on needles right now, I figured I really needed another one. So, I purchased some lvoely alpaca/silk lace and have attempted (several times) to cast the Ictis Shawl on. After about 1.5 hours worth of work (mind you, at a restaurant) this is what I have to show for it.
A garter tab--not a great one, but I refuse to rip it out again!
Wish me luck.
I think I am going to need lots of it.
