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 http://www.fibertrends.com/viewer/patterns/S2000.html , 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.
