I have been remiss

I've known about The Walker Treasury Project for a few weeks but have failed to mention it here. So a big Thank You to Maureen for mentioning it on her Blog.

In fact, I pulled out the first BW book last night to find a stitch to use to test this years KnittaPalooza colors. Terry owner of The Purled Llama, brought several more choices to Ewe Knit Kits & Yarn on Saturday in her "Sol" a DK wt superwash. I didn't hesitate when Bobbie asked me if I wanted half the skein to take home and test. The colors are very earthy. Burgandy, reds, browns, natural. Very very different that the last several years which were bright oranges, greens and purples.

If you didn't know, The Purled Llama dyes several of her yarns for KnittaPalooza in an exclusive color. A skein of this will be going home with me. It's time for a new "My Favorite Shawl"

Which by the way, is a new pattern from the WallisKnits label. It's being tested now. Pictures soon.
