It's a Fiesta!

Fiesta Blob
(I promise it'll be a shawl)

When I put all the yarns together for the feather and fan shawl, I had no idea it would look so festive. I started this in class yesterday, and it's grown exponentially since. In four more increase pattern repeats, I'll do two plain repeats and then start the decreases.

The dog is still demonstrating unusual interest in the angora yarn, so I took it out of the mix. I'd hate to do all that work and then come in to find it chewed up.

Ruth, yes, this one's for me. It has my own hand spun in there, so it's sort of special.

Oh, wow! You should be dancing the flamenco in that shawl. It's going to be such a happy thing to wear on those wintery days. Gorgeous colors.

I swear my first thought when I saw the picture was you were now dabbling in those crystal rocks - you know the ones you cut open and they have all the beautiful colors inside...

That is going to be lovely - it is nice you are taking these classes and finishing all these projects so quickly.

As for the angora - our dogs always loved anything rabbit we had in the house - so I suspect that is why he is so fascinated - good call tho' [it is rabbit right?]
