So fun to knit!!

 Finally finished my Coquille shawl. It took me longer than I anticipated probably do to less knitting time the past 2 weeks. We are down to one car working around two different work schedules which means a lot of driving. This is also the reason for no posts in a while.. I really had nothing new to show you as far as knitting goes. There was a lot of home and car repairs during that time not sure you want to hear about that.. hehe. Good thing is now I get to start a new project and I have pretty new yarn to work with. There is a pattern I have wanted to knit since I first saw it and that is Kristen Kapur's Andrea's Shawl. This shawl has a very unique construction that makes it pretty interesting to knit.. So here I go, I casted on and started working on the first step which is the bottom edging using some charcoal bamboo sock yarn. For the body I'm going to use my noro 
taiyo sock yarn. More pictures to come as I progress.

For now I leave you with some nice knitting music.. (^_^)

Love the Coquille shawl! The colos are perfect for that pattern, it really shows them off well!
