Keep the pictures coming

Jan sent an email last night.
This is my Slow Curves, made in Primrose Yarn, colours (I’m not sure which is which Salem, Balty, Primrose, Wonders). Thank you for the great colour selection! It is a massive shawl and I love it. I have enough yarn left over to make some or Mairlynd’s Rainy Day hat and fingerless gloves. 
You can purchase the pattern for Slow Curves on Ravelry.

I had a bit of time to play in the store today and put together some combinations for Slow Curves. These are all Hedgehog Sock. You can also use Skinny Singles but the yardage on Singles is less than Sock. You will need an extra skein of colour #3 if you choose Singles.

I used two colours of Pucker for this collection. They are different and would work well in a fade.
 Now that I'm looking at this picture, I might flip the two colours on the right.
 This is my Slow Curves. Joji writes a great pattern.
Slow Curves is a crescent shawl design that alternates wedges of solid colors with wedges of ‘faded’ or mixed yarns. With the use of short rows, these sections create curves that move like a pendulum. On one side of the shawl you will see 4 definite solid sections and on the other side you will see them all blended together. 
The result is this beautiful, big, optically intriguing shawl.
This shawl is worked from the centre top down. Stitches are increased at each side on every row to give it its characteristic crescent shape. The colors fade into the next one as you work short row wedges. 
Here are a few more of the brand new colours.
I have my MacBook and my iPad with me in the store. I'm working on my laptop and watching TV on my iPad. This is a screen shot from my iPad.
It made me a bit sad to see the reminder that my flight home from Myrtle Beach is at 3pm.
ETA: I didn't go to Myrtle Beach. I was supposed to go on Saturday and come home today. The trip was cancelled weeks ago. The reminder made me sad because I didn't get to spend some time in the sun and on the golf course.

It's a big TV night and I hope to get some knitting done. I need to do 2-3" of ribbing on my Throwback and then it will be time to cut. Yup. Cutting my knitting. I've done it before so I'm not worried. Beth and I will take lots of pictures as I do it.

Sorry - I think you misunderstood. I was supposed to fly to Myrtle Beach on Saturday and return home yesterday. I did not go on the trip. I cancelled it a few weeks ago.
