This is one of my distractions. The The Salt Lake Knitting Guild has started a KAL of their own. Everyone is knitting one of 3 difference shawl patterns together. I have chosen The Flowering Weeds Shawl, designed by Karalee Harding. I'm knitting it in black, which totally makes me blind, with lace weight yarn and small needles. I'm knitting it of Valley Yarns 2/14 Alpaca Silk.
In addition, we started a fun yarn switch at the Guild, where everyone brought 100 yards of yarn in a plain brown paper bag, and we switched them around. Everyone is to knit something to return to the yarn's original owner. I selected 2 skeins of a superwash wool. I'll be digging through my patterns, to find the perfect thing to knit of this yarn.
We have made several trips to the local pumpkin patch over the past several weeks. It was fun to look through hundreds of pumpkins for just that perfect one for carving.
We've decored the house for my favorite holiday, and we set up an evening for carving.
