KAL Update & A Challenge

Over the weekend I managed to get the body of the shawlette completed!

Now I started the leaf patterned border.

My knitting cyber-friend over at Caffeine Girl knit this pattern and made the remark on her blog that the leaves are quite addicting (as in like potato chips: once you knit one you want to knit just one more, then just one more, then just one more . . .)

She's SOOOOO right! Hard to put it down and get to work on my writing. (And I have deadlines!!)

I got a great email from Knitting Daily today encouraging knitters to think green when it comes to the craft. "Think outside the skein." I'm stealing the logo and putting it here as a sign of my intent to knit green!

You can read the article here!

Happy Knitting!

That green yarn was beautiful already by itself, but the shawlette is really pretty!
Oh and get to work!

Oh, no, you're so far ahead of me! I swifted the yarn last night and started casting on (the worst part!).

I'm a big fan of the green knitting challenge! :) Lovely Shawlette... coming along nicely.
