The Crew have gone off to TNNA, leaving me in charge.  We can discuss the flaws of that plan later.*

Taking a break (late lunch) and thought I’d share my latest wip – a Draper shawl just for me.  Shown with the lovely silk dupioni bag Sandy Kay made for me.  In pink, of course.

The yarn is Staccato in “Poodle Skirt“.  Love it – both the yarn itself and the color.  Yum.  (eta: please pardon the crappy washed-out cell pic)

Uh oh.  Gotta go.  I promise I’ll write a thorough post soon.  Honest.

*Leaving an admitted yarn whore in charge of an LYS is like leaving an alcoholic in charge of a bar.  Baaad idea.

About the Author fyberduck

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of ‘traditional’ knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
