The halfway mark was reached on The Orchid, my Alice Starmore Seaweed Wrap Shawl, yesterday as the snow flurried down. I continue to be mesmerized by this pattern and have repeatedly reminded the hubster that this my favorite knitting project – ever.
The Hebridean 2-ply is a joy to work with. So much so, that I bit the bullet and finally ordered the OREGON VEST that I have so long admired. My timing was good in ordering the vest because the exchange rate between the UK pound and US dollar has shot up this week. It is still far better than what it used to be when I started admiring all the sweaters at Virtual Yarns.
