Another day, another project! What a lovely pattern! Quick and oh so fun to knit up. I'll definitely be turning to it again come the December holidays.

Technically I have this bad boy listed as Project No. 6, but since I started/completed the shawl before picking up Project No. 5, it doesn't really feel like it. Oh well! May it be motivation to bang out Sibella!

A few comments on this yarn: First, what an incredible color. I wore the shawl at a retreat this weekend and received several compliments on this gorgeous shade of blue (and the lace edging). Depending on the light it has hints of purple and green. Lots of depth and richness to this color! Also, what fun to knit with 100% merino, something I haven't had the chance to do with a Better Sweater Project yet. Of course, I frogged one of my legit bought-the-yarn-in-a-yarn-shop sweaters so it feels a little like cheating. This experience will hopefully push me to search for better quality thrift store sweaters to frog in future.

I'll take more photos with my legit camera (after I finish blocking) in the next couple weeks to post to the projects page. Also, I have yarn to spare from this project so I think I'll knit an additional something something for No. 6!
