In November I wrote the Oh God its the holiday's again post. I mentioned I was using a yarn and making a project I desperately wanted. Last month I made the Shetland Triangle for myself. It has not been heavy shawl weather here since then.
I used Blue Moon Fiber Arts Luscious Single Silk a 50/50 silk and merino wool in the color Braun's Woods. It was knit on US size 9s following the pattern exactly. This patten takes about a week to knit. It was a huge hit at Christmas time as a gift. I love mine the colors all swirl together very 1960s psychedelically especially the browns. I can see making this shawl again as a gift. I know a few people have made it out of sock yarn.
In school news, I received my first draft of my thesis back yesterday. I made all of the changes which were minimal until the conclusion. I tried to punch up and flesh out the conclusion and worked on explaining the relevancy of the section on the 1976 coup. I really don't want to lose those 3 pages.
