A new shawl

A new year and a new project.  This is also my only WIP.  It is very satisfying. I guess I'm a moderate knitter.  No stash and always a limited number of projects on the needles.  Also, I don't knit every day.  I suppose this is why the projects I make take a while before they get completed...  This is the second time I knit a shawl.

In a few days, we should receive the first project (out of 6 in 2012) for the Tanis Year in Color 2012 club.  I really wonder what accessory and color it will be!

So, this week I started knitting the Andrea's Shawl.  What you see is the bottom edging in Impressionist Sky Malabrigo Sock.  I'm in love with both the color and touch of this yarn.  I have about one third of it done.  Very nice.  The border will be nice to knit I'm sure too.

This is all for now.  Have a great weekend everyone!

I can't wait to see you knit through the Tanis club. I've been drooling over her yarn.

Superbe couleur !

J'ai bien hâte de voir le premier patron et la laine que vous recevrez pour le club Tanis !

Tout comme toi, j'aime le bleu mais on ne se ressemble vraiment pas sur le nombre de projets sur nos aiguilles ou encore la quantité de laine en attente. ;-)

Ooh I do really like that color. Nothing wrong with being a moderate knitter! :)

Can't wait to see it finished! I made my Spectra in this color (as the main color) and though I'm not a "blue" person, this shade was beautiful. I know your shawl will be too :)
