haulin' oats

Watch out boy, she'll chew you upOh, here she comes
She's a yarn-eater
Ah... the immortal words of Hall & Oates. When I was little, I thought the name was "Haulin' Oats."

The "Simple Yet Effective Shawl" is growing, and it is just eating up the yarn. 3 balls down, 3 to go. I want this to be luxuriously roomy for staying warm and cozy while researching at the freezing cold library this fall and winter.

Rowan Tapestry is a loose singles yarn, and it's easy to knit with larger needles than recommended. I'm using bamboo needles with blunt tips, which I think helps a great deal. I wouldn't want to knit a sweater at a tight gauge with super-pointy Addi's, that's for sure.

Fall is on its way... :-)
