Yep, Still A WIP: Spruce Forest

IMGP4846 IMGP4848

I was a very bad knitter and worked on this a whole lot while I was in LA.  There were other, more pressing things to knit (no seriously, stuff with deadlines...eesh), but then every time I picked up this shawl I would have a moment of fugue and regain consciousness two hours and a few dozen rows later.  Oops.

The pattern is lovely, the fabric is wooly and light, the yarn has small bits of vegetable matter in it every so often - which always gives me a little nudge as if to say, remember where I came from? - and the color is a bewitching not-quite-mauve that is very nice to look at for long periods of time.

Now I just have to finish up my cowl for the swap I'm doing, so that I can devote some guilt-free time to the shawl.  Although, maybe it's just the guilt that makes it so nice?

It has been so long since I've had the time or excitement about a project to lose myself in my knitting. I am so ready for the project I'm working on to be over so I can do a little knitting just for me!
