Off To A Great Start ~ NCM2016

I wrapped up my ‘Armorique‘ shawl this morning and it’s pinned out drying as we speak. Riding a little bit of a high, I’ve started my second project for NCM2016, ignoring the knitting WIP’s is no problem at all. Project two is another shawl designed by Hilda Steyn that I’m calling ‘Smoke Rings‘ after its colour. More stashbusting happening, I trawled my Ravelry stash and came up with this beautiful merino/bamboo/nylon fingering from a 2008 Yarn Pirate club. Somehow, I had the foresight and funds at the time, to purchase two skeins.

In other news, the blocking of Armorique must mean that my finger is healed! It is, mostly. Enough that I didn’t mind getting it wet and who knows? Maybe Eucalan has some healing properties.

I’ll leave off here with some pix. I’m really diggin’ the YP shawl and anxious to get back to it and to Arkady Renko in ‘Polar Star‘ – my current book 🙂

I’m excited start my #NCM2016 project – Armorique Shawl by Hélène Marcy. I’ve reclaimed some Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine from a never-ending knitting project and am reading through the pattern to get a feel for the construction.
