In Unrelated News...

Ok, here's the thing. I'm trying to finish my Tuscany Shawl so I can wear it to my cousin's wedding tomorrow. I need all my energy and attention on my knitting, so I can't be pulled away to things like a really fabulous blog.

Here are two quick snaps of the shawl. I've done 8.5 pattern repeats of 11. At first, I thought my two balls of Seasilk were very different even though they are both the Paris colorway. In an act of desperation, I rerolled the second ball so that what was on the outside is now on the inside, if you catch me. Success! That's the thing with hand dyed yarn. Each skein is one of a knid and I thought I was done for, but my second ball was just a bit more blue and purple and a bit less brown and green on one end than the other. Now all I have to do is knit like the wind. I'm trying to channel Brenda Dayne. Think fast thoughts. Think Yarn Harlot fast. Think Divine Intervention.

So to distract you from my lack of knitting content, I present

Perhaps the Merck Manual 1967 edition was not ready for the Tuscan shawl. Check the 2007 edition. Should be in there, no??
If not, I'm sure you could write them and let them know once you've finished it :P

BTW I love the pictures you take of your yarn and projects in a "natural" setting. Cracks me up every time :)
