Here's the progress on the shawl so far:
And a lace detail:
I'm using Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool in a dark forest green color. It's gorgeous. I wanted to have it finished for this weekend's knitting retreat to Grandview, but I don't think it's going to happen. I'll have to put it on hold, since I plan to start Cobblestone on the trip. I'll see how much I can get done between now and then.
Oh, and another quick FO; the Republic Hat.
Pattern: The Republic Hat, by Nik's Knits
Yarn: Aussi Wool bulky weight, color, sensuous grey
I loved working with this yarn. It was so soft and sproingy - perfect for a hat. Unfortunately it grew like mad when wet, so it's waaaaay too big on me now. I'll try felting it, I guess.
