Knitting, right now...

I cannot even begin to describe just how much I love this yarn right here! It was ordered right around Christmas when Knit Picks had a great sale, and until 2 days ago, I had kind of forgotten about it. I had started a different project, but really wasn't feeling it. It got frogged and I dug through the stash. The yarn is Chroma in the color way Midwinter. The color ranges from pale purple to dark purple, light gray to a bluish purple. Swoon... The pattern I chose is the Calais Shawl and was found on Ravelry. I can't wait to see how this shawl turns out!!!
Ich kann euch gar nicht sagen wie toll ich diese Wolle hier finde! Um die Weihnachtszeit hatte Knit Picks viele tolle Angebote und da musste ich natuerlich zuschlagen. Bis vor zwei Tagen hatte ich total vergessen, dass ich mir diese Wolle gekauft hatte. Eigentlich hatte ich schon ein Projekt auf den Nadeln, war aber nicht allzu begeistert davon. Es wurde aufgetrennt und dieses Neue begonnen. Die Wolle ist Chroma und die Farbe heisst "Midwinter". Die Farben gehen von hell lila ins dunklere lila ueber, von hell grau bis blau/lila. Einfach klasse! Die Anleitung fuer diesen "Calais Shawl" habe ich auf Ravelry gefunden und war gleich hin und weg. Bin schon mal gespannt auf das Endergebnis!
Linking up with Frontier Dreams and Ginny. Go have a look at all the handmade goodness you can find there.
