While looking in my yarn stash for a yarn to use for my friend Jackie's present (I didn't have anything) I came across a yarn cake of Araycania Ranco Multy that I had purchased last April for the Multnomah shawl. Since I was itching for something to knit, I figured...why not!
I love this yarn - although, the skein had appeared to be more pink then what it is. It is an explosion of color - pinks, browns, yellows, purples, and greens...and it's blended together so beautifully. Well done, Araycania, well done. So well done that I think I need to re-name my project. Currently, it is called Sunset Over Multnomah...but the colors are not really a sunset.
So far I have about 160ish stitches. I am increasing up to 193 (making the small shawl) before heading into the feather & fan portion.
My friend Christy and I are doing a coast-to-coast KAL on this one...which is fun! She is such a talented knitter that it's great to be working on something together. She is using the same yarn even, but in a different colorway.
I feel bad - I haven't been visiting all of your blogs lately. Just not enough time in the day, but I do read them while I'm at work when I can...but I can't always comment. So, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all the comments and kind words you share with *me*.
