Wings over Pittsburgh

First, my apologies to Sir Paul, but hey - a catchy title is a catchy title!

It's too dark to get any nice action shots of the shawl in progress but I didn't tell you much about it yesterday, so I guess we can fill in some gaps tonight!

The pattern is called Wingspan. It's a pretty nifty concept, short rows, all garter stitch and a total of 8 triangles (although you can make it larger if you choose).

For my yarn, I've picked Sausalito by Crystal Palace. The colour is Mediterranean and it's a lovely group of blues.

I've just started my third triangle, so I seem to be on a good pace to get this completed before the Olympics are over. Hopefully some action shots will be coming soon!

Is this thing on?

Well, it certainly is dusty in here! Guess that's what happens when you don't do anything with the blog in 5 months!!! February is for Finishing didn't exactly get all of the stuff finished, but it's Olympic time and tham means Ravelympics Ravellenic games! I've decided to try my hand at a shawl this time around. And in hopes of maybe actually doing some blogging I've decided to link up with Jeanne at Life in Cleveland's social media link up.

No pictures yet, but I've gotten one of the triangles of the shawl completed! I'll try for pictures later this week!
