Next KAL

I've been asked what we are going to do for our next KAL. I'm undecided so I need some help from you. Please leave a comment on this post or send me an email.

I think that everyone is enjoying doing shawls. I have been asked about doing one of these

Warrior Shawl
Artesian by Romi

Ashburn

Halfway There

Let me know your thoughts. Do you know of another pattern that looks interesting?

Just as I was closing I received a phone call from Tina at Freia Fibers. An order is leaving California on Tuesday with lots of fingering.
Kim used 2 balls of fingering to knit Auburn Wave and we have been very low in the store. In a week or so we will have LOTS!

Mint Julep
Espresso
Blue Velvet
Cochinilla
 Fuchsia
 Pixie
Vertigo
Atlantis
 Lichen (the colour that Kim used)
River

And there are 4 brand new colours that Tina hasn't added to the website yet. Here is a picture of them from the trade show in May.

Here is a blog post from a shop in the US - Fibre Space. They designed their own shawl in Freia Fingering and a solid sock yarn. It's fantastic. And our balls of Fingering are larger (322 yards vs 215 yards) so you will get an even bigger shawl.

No knitting today but after I hit Publish a marathon is starting. I'm almost 3/4 through the extension on Itineris. Beth is grocery shopping and running errands for me so that I can knit. I will have it done tomorrow.

I've been fortunate enought to visit and shop at Fibre Space in the beautiful town of Alexandria VA. It's a wonderful shop and as for Freia, I absolutely love that yarn.

How 'bout something from the Jumper Cables library?
