I hope your Sunday is better than mine. I am sick,sick,sick with the worst crud I have had all year. Considering how many people at work have been sick off and on since Christmas, I guess I am lucky not to have fallen ill more times than this. Especially with how often people grab my phone at work and my pens too--the joys of working at a front desk! If not remarkably better by tomorrow, I will be heading in to clinic for a strep test. Tonight is Sam's last ever symphony concert with the special group he has played with since 8th grade-4.5 years-- and I am not going to miss it. I will be that horrible person who goes out in public sick--I missed his last concert in the Fall due to stomach flu and I just wanted to cry yesterday when I realized how sick I was. Today is better--I am upright anyways. :)
Now, enough of my whining and on to the good stuff--yarn!
I am going to be participating in Knit Purl Hunters mystery shawl kal- which starts on April 3rd. Her kal's are so well executed and even thought the Rylie yarn is a bit spendy, I allowed myself to splurge as I know when I am done I will have a beautiful item to wear. Click the link above to read all about it.
Here is my Rylie yarn ---the color is Abalone and I am so excited to get going on this project! Rylie yarn is a mix of alpaca, silk and linen and is just beautiful.
My other shawl--the one I am knitting up for the Seattle to Portland Yarn Train--is coming alone quite well. I had hoped to finish it this weekend, but I was too sick to even knit, people! The pattern for this shawl is Sugared Violets and is quite nice to knit. It will be my first crescent shaped shawl and I am really looking forward to wearing it. This blue is hard to photograph--it is actually a bit darker than in these photos.
Now, while Sugared Violets took up most of my knitting time this week, I did find a few minutes to work on Greta Kitty--here you can see that the legs have been joined and the body has begun.
And to give hope to all my East Coast readers who are still buried under feet of snow, Spring has happened here and it will for you too! This is the ornamental plum tree in my front yard--see the blue sky too? That was a welcome sight as we have been deluged by rain all month!
That is all I have today. I hope to visit all of you to see what wonderments you are creating!
