Gold Nugget

I was pointed to Gold Nugget Shawl by a friend, having avoided looking at new patterns because of the many projects on needles. But that combined with seeing Shui's second version on Ravelry (I'm fiberlyone there, too, btw), I just couldn't resist. I started it to take on a trip to Hawai'i last week.

Here's the cast on from before the trip.

And progress from the trip.

The pattern isn't too hard, but it took a couple of days to get the pattern in my head. Now it's progressing pretty well. But there are other projects on the needles for the upcoming holidays, so finishing may not be as quick as I'd like.

Another Voyager done

I finished a second VOYAGER. It is for International Scarf Exchange 5. Its the Cash Tweed Oak that Tom overdyed with blue raspberry koolaid. The pattern is wonderful. I don't think I will ever get tired of it!!!

It's DONE!

It has taken me a really long time but I FINALLY finished my Pacific Waves Shawl in Sonata - Rose Garden colorway. I'm very happy with the way it turned out except that it is really quite long. I think a little wider and a little shorter would be more to my taste but I still love it and can't wait to find someplace to wear it. Now the hard part is figuring out which Elann shawl to make next - there are so many gorgeous shawls!
