Still way too much going on chez Caffeinated Yarn for my tastes... to borrow from brokeknits: blah, blah, dissertation, blah, blah, scholarship application, blah, blah, the sound of deadlines whizzing past me, blah, blah... Plus some serious family health issues and lots on the calendar, including good things like a rather posh wedding yesterday (huzzah for top-shelf open bars, btw). One thing at a time, I suppose.
I did, however, manage to photograph a shawlette. This was knit a while back but mysteriously hasn't appeared on the blog previously:
Pattern: Ruffle My Feathers, by Caryl Pierre
Yarn: Orange Flower MCN Fingering Weight, "Raindrop," 1 skein
Needles: Clover US 6 bamboo circs
The yarn is soft and lovely, but perhaps a little more variegated than is ideal for this pattern. It was a pretty quick knit, although the feather-and-fan lace pattern is not handled in the most user-friendly way (cough, there may have been a wee bit of tinking, cough). The shape is great -- it really wraps around you nicely.
