The Makings of a Party

12 Apr

It’s been years since I’ve had the chance to dress up, so it’s been a joy to find a dress and shoes. Now all I need is a great shawl pattern – a light lace shawl with a motif that doesn’t clash with my dress (I think the color contrast is quite enough excitement for one outfit). Oh, and I also need enough time to knit a shawl.

At first I was going to buy a lace-weight yarn, but went with Araucania Ranco Solid. I figured fingering weight would knit up more quickly, and the colorway is pretty much as near perfect as it seems possible to find.

I still have around 3 months to get this done, but I bet the time will just fly by.

      They’re from Tamaris, and that’s basically all I know. I got them off sale, so probably last year’s collection. They’re amazingly comfortable!
