This next photo is just a closer look at the design and the colors. I can't believe how easy the feather and fan pattern has turned out to be. It looks so much harder than it really is. I almost didn't even try this KAL but I figured "what could it hurt to try". I have learned so much from all the groups I have joined this year. My only regret is that I didn't join a long time ago.
This is my lovely summer scarf KAL from the same group. This is my progress after Day 3. No matter how I take the picture, I can never get the color true. This is a little darker than the actual yarn. This is the Sinfonia yarn...very nice. Only drawback with the Sinfonia is that it seems to want to split. But it's worth the trouble. It looks so nice once it's knitted.
And I haven't totally given up on the acrylic shawl. I don't like to be beaten. And the colors are pretty. So I'll keep you updated on that one. For now, I'm still (not so patiently) waiting on my Knitpicks Options to get here. :( I am so eager to see if all the hype is true. And I just ordered some more wonderful soap from Kandie (JustforKhix). She has some new ones that I can't wait to get my hands on.
