First, the tea shawl looked like this:
Now, it looks like this:
Rip, rip, rip, and R.I.P. It has started to make me cry. It doesn't make me happy. Yes, it's beautiful, but the knitting makes me want to cry. And it shouldn't do that. So it sits now with the rest of the stash, in a permanent time out, til I decide that I must have the tea shawl again. Or some other lovely lacy thing.
I purchased a hank of Silk Rhapsody Glitter this weekend. It is turning into the Misty Garden scarf in Scarf Style. It's SO soft, and makes me happy. I thank Amy for that purchase.
I also purchased a hank of laceweight yarn this weekend, dyed by the lovely Artsygal. It is to become Icarus, from the Summer issue of Interweave. I'm a glutton for punishment doing another lace shawl, but lace makes me happy.
