The pattern for the Odyssey Shawl is free on Ravelry. This would be a great project for our KAL. Here are a few older posts about the KAL.

Odyssey is a crescent shaped shawl in 3 colors of medium-weight yarn. Medium weight means DK, or worsted, or even Aran! The good news is that you knit it up super fast. Each color section ends with a lace band that features striking big eyelets and wavy texture.  
It works with MANY yarn weights, and with ANY yarn! You don’t need to buy any special yarn for this design. Check your stash and see what inspires you! 

As we were unpacking the box from Primrose we put together some combinations for Odyssey using Vintage DK.

Doreen came in today to show off her latest project. It is stunning!!! This is Andrea Mowry's Rose Cardigan.

It was raining when Doreen came in and she was willing to stand outside while I snapped pictures. Thank you Doreen.

Doreen used four colours of tosh sport.

This open cardigan is a true adventure in knitting! Combining unique sideways construction, cables, fading and exposed seams to create a flattering oversized dolman style sweater that looks great on all types of figures! Knit in one color or four, to suit your style! This sweater has a beautiful curved underarm that creates a lot of drape for an oversized look, with long, slim cuffs that give you different styling options. You can either wear them long, to accentuate the slender portion of your arm, or cuff them for a shorter sleeve!
Did I mention that it is stunning??
Doreen commented that she was apprehensive about knitting the cardigan after she purchased the pattern. It is a lot of pages and at first glance it looks very confusing. After you start knitting it makes perfect sense. Andrea writes a great pattern.

The sizing is very large. Doreen knit the XS.

FedEx is delivering a box of books tomorrow.
We have been out of Laine #6 and a few copies are coming tomorrow.
Strange Brew will be back in stock as well.

My second ball (on the right) is wound and ready.
I'm finishing early before our guests arrive. Dad's job is cutting the beans. He swears that when he cuts them they taste better.
