It's been a crazy, busy week around here. The end of the month was Sunday so all my House Cup classes were due, as well as proof of 50% progress on my OWLs. I already turned in one OWL's progress but the other was down to the wire. I took my picture and posted it with less than two hours to spare. As you can see, the picture quality wasn't all that great either.
What can I say, it was late.
On November 1st I cast on a new project, a Holden Shawlette. I saw someone wearing one at Rhinebeck and asked what pattern it was. It's a quick knit so far, although that could be because I can't put it down because the yarn is dreamy - Alina Shea Creations Shmerino in Peace at the Beach, the June club yarn (80/10/10 superwash merino/cashmere/nylon).
I'm afraid the yarn and pattern are fighting too much with each other though and the shawlette would be better in another colorway. That.... that would be a serious bummer. Either way, I'm finishing it and giving it a chance. All the shawlettes at Rhinebeck gave me shawlette envy and I've finally accepted that the only way to have my friends and family begging for lace is to show them how awesome it is.
The brown thing on the right is Spike's sweater. It goes everywhere in my purse these days.
