It doesn't help that the yarn is gorgeous too that I am using. The yarn is from Carrie gosh do I love her yarns! It also doesn't help that she is close by.
I did get a tiny bit of progress on my fairisle hat though... wanna see?
Yep! I took a picture of the yarn. Now what to do with it...

this moment - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor, and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see. Thank you soulemama

I finished up 2 shawls this past week and I really think I need to branch out some. They look similar, but are really totally different.
First up is a pattern I saw in Ravelry which is called "The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief"
You may recognize this yarn from my last "this moment" post. It's a discontinued yarn from Schaefer Yarn Company called Little Lola. It is 100% merino and super super soft. It will be used more as a scarf than a shawl as it really isn't that big. I love the yarn over details and instead of yarn overs for the center increases it is made with "make ones". It's nice to try a new style out every now and then.
Next up is a shawl that I have designed my self! It is called "Hither To"
I used Aslan Trends Santa Fe Sock yarn for this. I really liked the colors and the yarn, but while knitting it I thought this isn't really great yarn for socks. It really is much nicer for a shawl. I don't know if my feet would like it. This is a simple shawl with a stockinette body and a border of yarn overs. See what I mean about the similarities? I just finished a shawl last month that was also like this. Really now, it's time to move on Beth!
I am not sure what is up next. I have another sockhead hat in the works and a sock to finish. Not to mention my sweater. The sweater is just going to have to wait. It's too dang hot.
