I decided that I was going to cast on one last selfish project before I commenced Holiday Crafting in earnest.
It's getting chilly now, so I started with the two skeins of thick wool for a nice shawl. The pattern is called Sidewalk Shawl (and I'd link for you, but I'm lazy and don't feel well) but I'm calling this one Dark December. I love the very subtle blues, greens, yellows, and rusty reds mixed in with the black.
I got the yarn from the Briar Rose Fibers tent at Rhinebeck. It was the skein that I saw from about forty feet away and said to my mom, "over here! I have to have that, it's perfect!"
And now, I'm off to walk some dogs in the rain, and hope my fever goes away.
