I also tried something new to me on this shawl--I used the Russian Join method of adding a new skein of yarn. That is fabulous! If you haven't tried this before, here is one link for how to do it. http://www.geocities.com/mama_bear_007/Russian_Join.html Aside from the fact that one or two stitches are just a little heavier than the others, you can not see it at all. And after you do the next row, it is really hard to find them!
And here is a picture of one of the fingerless mittens I made. Kinda hard to take a picture showing both of them!
Today I think I will work on something small like a basket or shopping bag. My new yarn hasn't come yet and I don't want to start another large project yet. I do have the yarn for a poncho but I don't think I want to start that right now.
