Walkin' on Sunshine!

Last night while in the grip of horrible tension headache I got some great news, the Zephyr I ordered had arrived, and so had the 12mm split rings!

This morning feeling much better, I set to work, first to make a batch of stitch markers for tomorrow's knit night:

Then to the shawl,
OMG! The Jaggerspun Zephyr is amazing, I sat myself down in my chair in my favorite sunbeam and set to casting on and I was amazed, this yarn positively GLOWS! The resulting fabric is so soft and squishy and delicious. It's a good thing I like Monica or I would so be keeping this shawl for myself. But since I do like her, I get to do something even better, once I finish this, I'm going to buy MORE Zephyr and make another shawl for me, mmmm...
Right now I'm about half way through the first repeat of chart 1B (Sunshine)

I'm having trouble keeping my hands off it, I want to keep working, even though I know I have to finish Bill's gaiter sometime before the 20. (We're going to a winter fun days event at the Minna Anthony Common Nature Center up on Wellesley Island, and he'll need the extra warmth)

Looks yummy! And I know what you mean about Zephyr - will I ever want to knit with anything else?
(((hugs)))

Shinies!

I can't wait until I can get my paws on some Zephyr, but it's not in the budget just yet.

KnitNana --
Thanks! it is divine, I whish I had the money to knit with it all the time!

Sara --
This was a special purchase, Monica is going to be my Maid of Honor and this is going to be her thank you gift, she has been such an awesome friend to me, I wish I could give her more.
(and I wish I could afford to knit with the Zephyr more often, it is totally worth the price!)
