Quill is a big blob of chocolate, as I just picked up all 380+ stitches around the outside edges. You may remember, before the Knitter's Retreat, I started this shawl with provisional cast on using the cord of a circular needle instead of waste yarn. I was pleased with it then, but now I'm over the moon about it. Using the cord meant knitting stitches off a needle, instead of picking out the waste yarn and fussing to get a bunch of tiny live stitches on a needle.
I'm far from finished, with 50 rows of lace ahead and the edging after that. The process is slow, but I'm very happy about the journey. (Maybe I should change to a longer needle.) The yarn is Kim's (The Woolen Rabbit) Lark fingering (discontinued) and it's a lovely blend of alpaca/silk called Godiva.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend! I'll be here, posting everyday (why do I do this?).
