Starting as soon as my Christmas Skirt was done, I dove in to the other yarns that I purchased at the Article Pract closing sale, including some great lace-weight yarn that I used to whip up the Rock Island Shawl.
And I ran out.
This, as you can surmise, was the reason for the first rule of going Cold Sheep - purchasing yarn to finish a project is acceptable. So I did, and it took a while to come in, but luckily it came in just in time for Stitches (more on that later).
I absolutely love it! Love love love! The pattern was confusing at first, but really quickly became something I could conceptually follow without really even having to look at it. It's great as a scarf hanging off the neck, and as a shawl, it will be amazing in the summer on the beach, with my family.
