You know when it rains it pours around here. My design droughts sometimes seem to last forever, but then I get on a roll and things just go. I actually have one design on the needles right now, and a second in the almost ready to type up and swatch stage. So we might get a shawl a week for the next few weeks. Also one of my design submissions hit pay-dirt! So that's exciting too. Oh and yeah. I won the calender raffle today at school. So that's $25! I must have done something right. Either that or I'm flying under the radar.

I know I seem to have new-itis. I get really excited about new designs at first. And then I hit the middle stretch and get really tired of them. That's why this one took so long to knit. But then I finished it, and I blocked it, and the angels sang...

Look at those points. Look at those scallops. Look at that blue-green loveliness. That is courtesy of Malabrigo Sock of course. Indicieta colorway.

It's reversible, and the scallops make the prettiest collar when it's folded over. And it's available now.
