...And the winner is...
I was really torn between the Knit Witch and the Wollmeise, so were the commenters (thanks for all of the votes), but Natalie, the designer of the shawl, suggested the Wollmeise, that that tipped the scales for me.
During the three weeks of the tour, I plan to challenge myself and also work on a crochet pattern as well. I came across the pretty Zipline Shell from the Summer, 2011 Interweave Crochet the other day, and I feel that it will fit the ticket.
Currently, fiddling around with gauge with some linen. It's still a little off, so I got more adjusting to do, but the pattern looks cute, and it should be fast and fairly easy. I'm already used to the pattern since I've done several swatches.
Holiday Weekend on Deck
Really looking forward to getting both projects started and on the way this weeked while watching the Tour de France.
My wheels are on fire, just like these ladies.
Well, maybe not quite like them, but I'm excited, anyway.
