I've been working a lot on a shawl that was started during the Women's Retreat. It's ironic that the shawl looks like a hurricane. See the difference?
I thought that it was quite amusing that my knitterly result of the retreat is turning out to look like a big storm. A portent of stormy weather to come, a warning to take cover. I should have taken heed, because of the fallout that happened, but that's another story.
I'm on the 3rd skein of the shawl and really need a 4th to make sure I get the border done with enough yarn to spare. Luckily, a couple people on ravelry have the yarn so I'm trading for a skein from someone else.
This is my progress in a nutshell:
Skein 1 - started for the women's retreat. Looked kind of weird, but I liked the yarn, liked the pattern.
Skein 2 - wow, this is a great portable project! Great for emergency knitting in my car.
Skein 3 - Hmm, going to need more yarn. Whoa, is this like, a hurricane?
