 I need twelve gray stripes before I can go into the next and last part of the Color Affection pattern. Each stripe equals two rows of knitting back and forth.

I have only nine at the moment and with all the increases, those rows have become mind numbingly looooooong. From this point on, this is going to take a while so I did the only thing I know to do in this situation.

Start another project, of course. Meet Holden. She looks pretty boring right now but in a few more rows she will get much fancier. I want to wear this to this year's Shenandoah Valley Fiber Fest because I spun it out of some fiber I bought there last year. I am getting obsessive about this little tradition of mine. The problem is, that ticker over there on the right says I only have two months to get it done and there is an awfully long way to go.


  1. I just did this one a while back. It goes pretty quick so I'm sure you'll get it done in time. I love your color choice! It's going to be fab in those pretty fall colors!

  2. Holden is a great pattern for handspun! Can't wait to see yours.

  3. Very pretty shawls. Love the yarns you've chosen.
