I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date...

Well, technically, I am not yet late. Today is the due date according to the magic math that doctors do. But...Yeah. No wee viking yet.

So, I'm distracting myself! Specifically, I cast on the Dreambird Shawl on Thursday. I went to the Estes Wool festival last Saturday with my newly transplanted sister-in-law, and picked up a couple of colour gradients from Fiber Optic Yarns that were simply drool worthy. I really wanted to use one of them, thus, spiffy gradient shawl.

I'm currently 5 feathers in, and it is a very fun knit. Excellent distraction, up until the time that my hands are filled with a more demanding project. The colours I'm using are Turquoise to Tangerine, with a main colour of a very vibrant royal purple.

I also finished knitting the Rose of England shawl, which turned out beautifully. The photos don't quite do it justice, as I blocked red on a red background, but you can get the general gist of it.
