Last night I added the 2nd color to my Zephyr Cove shawl. It wasn't really time yet, but I started to get scared I would run out of the main color before I got any stripes knit. Someone on Ravelry gave me advice on how to make the lace part work out, so I think I will be good.
Over the weekend, I read a blog post encouraging people to knit what makes them happy. It was a reminder that there are no knitting police, so who cares how many projects I might have on the needles (its lucky 13 if you find you do care) or how much stash someone has or whatever. Its a hobby so I need to do what makes me happy. So I cast on this crazy pair of socks.
The pattern is Monkey by Cookie A and I have already knit this one twice, but I really enjoy knitting it. The yarn is from Holiday Yarns in a colorway made custom for the store where I bought it.
