Grab some mini skeins

I'm almost finished. I might have enough yarn for one more section. The great thing about this pattern is that I can cast off when I'm almost out of yarn - no one will know if the last section is completely finished.
It doesn't matter what your favourite colour is, it's in the shawl.
The pattern is very easy - almost mindless but the colour changes keep you interested. Andrea writes a great pattern that is easy to follow.
Ambah O'Brien has a new pattern. The Adventurer Cowl. You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry.
Grab some mini skeins of yarn and whip up this fun project, a fun addition to your cool weather wardrobe and a perfect gift for someone special. Designed to use minis from Advent kits or those gorgeous yarn sets gathered over the year, the Adventurer Cowl is also perfect to use up those teeny balls left over from your favourite projects. Fade it, work your colours in a more random order or choose a main colour with some colour pops thrown in along the way! Choose between a long or short loop and enjoy a knitting adventure! 
The pattern includes both written and charted instructions for the lace. 
Suitable for an advanced beginner, the project begins with a provisional cast on, is worked flat, on the bias then a 3 needle bind off joins the ends together.
The short cowl takes 320m (348 yards) and the long cowl takes 630m (688 yards). This is a great pattern for the mini skein kit you have sitting in your stash. 

I have bags of leftover fingering weight yarn that I should sort out. They would work great for this pattern.

What a beautiful day. I barbecued pork chops for dinner. Without a winter coat on. Now it's time for more knitting. Maybe two more nights and Nightshift should be finished.
