Spring Things progress

I've decided to persevere with the Spring Things shawl in KSH. It looks like a rather rumpled thing at the moment but I think it will work quite well:



I certainly find it a lot easier to work on this in daylight - and the tank top at night!

Having a week or so off work is not good for avoiding yarn temptation. I snagged a pack of Yorkshire Tweed Aran in "Hero" (a lovely almost-teal blue) from Jannette's special offer email. From last week's Posh Yarn sale page, two gorgeous skeins of Emily 4ply, one in "Dainty" to accompany the other skein previously acquired, and "Digress":



Finally an ebay bargain won at the end of March which arrived from the Netherlands this week. Ten skeins of Lana Grossa Royal Tweed in yellow, intended for the Textured Tunic from Fitted Knits. I believe this is the colour the original was made in. Yellow isn't a colour I would use a lot but this is a very cheery shade, and the yarn is rather fabulous.

Your shawl is looking very pretty (and well done you on perservering with KSH!). Lovely haul too - I was lucky enough to snaffle some Emily from Posh Yarns tonight :)

The shawl is looking good, I avoid KSH at all costs but am looking for an alternative. Posh Yarn is addictive!

The shawl looks like it's going to be wonderful and well worth persevering with the KSH. Beautiful Posh Yarn as ever! :-)

You know, that yellow is a nice yellow - not a harsh one - and it looks like a great yarn.
Ooh, still using KSH for Spring Things, you are brave! It's looking lovely.

Ooh gorgeous stuff, especially the posh yarns. The shawl looks lovely so far and I'm sure blocking will do it's miracles once you're done.
