You have to watch this fairly new video cast that I have been turned onto. I am loving it and I think you will too!

Over on Ravelry in the Knitaway board, we've been knitting on the Birds Nest Shawl for our Spring KAL. I cannot believe how much I have been knitting on it! I say again, markers have been my salvation on this and I am now a convert to using them on lace patterns.
I took my Birds Nest Shawl to camp to knit on. I, also had a spare project in case I couldn't pay attention to what was going on and keep to the pattern.
But, I surprised myself and really accomplished a lot while there. Only downside, I ran out of yarn so I have put an order in for another skein from Cheryl. As soon as I get it, I'll have another shawl done. Mine is out of Just Beautiful Alpaca which will be a great shawl to throw on in the cold air condition!
On my list since Susan Rainey did her first one is Hitofude. I ordered Sea Pearl from Chris at Briar Rose in the early Spring for mine. Since I am waiting for more yarn for the shawl, I am swatching. I am down to a size 1 needle. I see a trend in my color ways - Shades of Gray.
And the downsize of this morning. As I was walking out to go to work this morning, this is what greeted me. Seriously, what makes someone do this? I just don't get it.
