Shawl progress

Since I finished working on my daughter's infinity scarf (you can see it here), I have been happily knitting my feather and fan shawl. 
I have knitted through the darkest shade of the yarn and am working with a lighter grey again. I have to pay attention and count a lot when I am knitting this shawl or I spend a bunch of time frogging. I really like the way it is looking. I don' t know whether I will get any use out of it this year, but that is okay. I will enjoy it whenever it is finished.

I am joining Ginny for Yarn Along today. What are you knitting/crocheting? What are you reading? Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are up to. I am re-reading The Perfume Collector by Kathleen Tessaro. I still had this on my "want to read" list when I went to the library, but I have actually read this book. I have another book that I borrowed, but I decided that I would read this one again. I am enjoying the easy read and I am actually reading it more thoroughly this time. 

Thanks for stopping by!

What a gorgeous shawl you have on your needles, Cathie! Thanks for the book recommendation--it has been on my Kindle for awhile now... Time to give it a try :)

If only I wasn't on a stash busting journey at the moment, I'd be tempted to cast on one of these shawls. Although I do have one yarn that might be good......maybe! Not heard of your book, but like the title.

Lovely shawl, such gorgeous looking wool! I know I would have problems knitting this, far too complicated for me! Actually, I say that but I do have some knitting on my needles at the moment ..... just not getting on with it ..... I'm using a horseshoe stitch, which is fairly easy once you have done about a dozen rows, then you can see if the pattern is going right ..... I just haven't got that far yet! My horseshoe stitch looks a little like the stitch you are using! Look forward to seeing your shawl when it is finished!
Great title for a book!
