This is my "SPECIAL" purchase

I have been ogling this shawl pattern for a few years now, and keep talking myself into waiting. I mean, I already have the Pacific Northwest Shawl waiting to be cast on , in a gorgeous teal green lace merino.

But it was right there, on a table, screaming - oops! I mean "calling" out to me, so I caved. Then, the next day a new vendor came in - who wasn't there on the first night - and she had the yarn! The JaggerSpun Zephyr Wool-Silk, just like in the pattern. (I have heard so many wonderful coments about this yarn, and wanted to try it sometime.) I picked the color JADE, but it reminds me of an AQUA, a nice sea green shade. So it must have been meant to be.

I can't wait to start this, but have sworn to complete a couple of projects already OTN first.

    麗MºñFluerEyes: Can't wait either. Nice shade of green, bet it would look even more beautiful when done into a shawl. You would look outstanding wearing this. :)

    LDSVenus: hehe, yeah, right, sure you will finish some of the OTN now stuff first ;P. It is a great looking pattern, I have been oogling her shawls for some time, just never find the time to get any started, someday. Be sure and take pictures so we can see the progress of it, that is a wonderful color you chose.

    Anoingtingoil: I bought this pattern too! I can't wait to try it. I also have some other projects to get done first. What a coincidence. I love your yarn color too.
