A Small Diversion

This past week between a deadline project (or two or three) I managed to sneak in some personal knitting time. A few weeks back Connie gave me some leftover Shepard Sock in Echo from her gorgeous Mountain View Cardigan and I knew it was destined to become a second Bliss shawlette.

I cast on last Monday, had a finished little shawlette by Friday, and it was all dry by Saturday. Bliss then took a little tour of Astoria, mainly to Martha's Country Bakery. Mmmm, best cupcakes ever!

I really like the way it turned out in the fingering weight yarn, definitely a bit more lacy. The shawl did end up blocking out to the correct size, but the length shrunk up slightly since the original Seasilk has a bit more weight to it. As far as yardage goes, I used a little over 1 skein, about 270 yards total of the Shepard sock with a US size 7 needle.

Ok, now it's back to the deadline knitting!
