Peer Pressure

I was happily knitting away on my shawl, making good progress, when peer pressure got to me. Everyone seemed to be doing Follow Your Arrow. And I peeked at the first clue. And, well…

I cast on. I didn’t have enough 4 ply in my own stash, so I raided the Dublin Dye shop and turned up a skein of Merino Silk in Troublemaker that was a bit too purple. Or at least that’s my excuse for picking this skein!  The yarn is my favourite fibre combination for laceweight, so I’m enjoying the knitting.

To counteract the lace here and in Portico, I’ve started working on Autumn Whispers again.  Three active WIPs is enough for the moment, so although I want to cast on Carol Feller’s first Irish Yarn Club project, I think it’s going to have to wait.

Also, my poor camera is in the shop, refusing to focus. I’m stuck with the camera phone until further notice.
