Things, finished

A large coral colored shawl to wear with a tan dress to my sister-in-law's wedding. I am told that this color combo is so in right now. Being the intensely fashionable person that I am, did you think I'd wear anything else??

The pattern is Damask in the largest size. Super fun to knit.

The yarn is Knitting Notions Classic Merino Bamboo. So yummy. The warm sunset light makes it look much brighter than it is. The color is actually much more earthy and subdued. My shawl doesn't really glow in the dark.

And some spinning. IT LOOKS LIKE REAL YARN!!

It needs a good soak. It's a bit energetic and super twisty right now. This is about 110 yards, sport weight, Navajo-plied. There is another bobbin resting that I'll ply tomorrow and then, I think they'll become some Albina Armwarmers.
