I'm Doing It Again...

I picked this up this weekend---

It's 5 skeins of Koigu KPM in color #2238. The color reminds me of perfectly ripe raspberries. I couldn't help myself, I just had to cast on for this---

It's another Shetland Triangle from Wrap Style. This one's for me though. I'm going to make it super big, so I can wander around in a pretty shawl all spring.

I'm 1 row into the second ball, and I'm thinking that 5 skeins is going to make a huge shawl. I'm using a 5mm Addi Turbo circ., FYI.

There will be lots of knitting time this Easter weekend, because I've decided to treat myself and take the Monday off as well. Thank God for four day weekends!

Wow - you cast on again for a project that you just completed? That must be an awesome pattern. I already have the yarn - must cast on.

It's going to be beautiful. The color is lovely. I can't wait to someday cast on for a lace shawl.

I love the colour, quite similar to the Koigu I have got for socks.
