Still here...

The first few months of 2012 have just flown by. I can hardly believe that May is almost halfway through, and I've yet to post a single thing on this blog.

Like every year, I began 2012 with lofty ideas of using more of my ever expanding stash, and buying yarn only when I need it. However, that idea didn't really work, as I managed to amass a fair amount of yarn even during January, when I was supposed to be on a semi-yarn diet. Alarwyn and I had agreed that with the exception of birthday yarn, all yarn purchases in January had to be approved by the other.

 I have managed to finish some projects, so it's not like the only thing I've been doing is increasing the size of my stash.

This shawl is my first project of the year. I used the increase pattern from Ysolda Teague's Damson shawl, but otherwise it was purely a project of my imagination.

The shawl is surprisingly warm from something knit in a laceweight blend of wool and silk, so it's been used a great deal so far.

My version of the Eternal Spring Shawl was finished next.

Most recently I finished my Cladonia.
