Between this and that....

there's a shawl.

I am really between projects, so this is what I have been working on. I would like to make Fantine. I have the yarn and the pattern, but I can't find the pattern. We moved a couple of months ago, and the last time I saw the pattern was on the table in our old living room. It hasn't turned up.

I have been thinking about knitting some holiday gifts. Thinking about it isn't that productive.

I have also been thinking about just reaching my hand into my bin o' yarn and knitting something out of whatever I grab. I dream of turning over most of my stash by using it up. Dreaming isn't that productive, either.

Hey, at least I'll have a shawl to show for it. This is a feather and fan shawl with Andean Treasure from Knitpicks. The yarn is truly wonderful and soft. I don't think of this as a shawl as much as a thick scarf to chase away the Italian chill. "Shawl" sounds like something someone really old would use. Certainly someone in their 40's at least : )
