A great way to open up a new year.

I started the New Year by working on a project that I started after Christmas.  And by doing so I may have found yet another desert island yarn.  

I'm making a simple garter stitch shawl increasing 4 stitches one row and 2 on the next.  This give you that glorious wearable horseshoe shaping. Briggs and Little Sport.

It appears just the smallest bit washed out here, but it is the richest deepest of charcoals.  

I really enjoyed working with the Regal but this?  This takes it to a whole other level.  Desert island yarn.

OK, I admit it.  I would never be able to get by on a desert island.  I mean really.  One yarn?  Forever?  How could I pick between Sandnesgarn Tove, Custom Woolen Mills Mule Spinner 2 ply, the Laceweight Einband?  How could one choose between them?  

I think I have a have new desert island.  My new desert island is going to have a yarn store specialising in delicious, slightly crunchy, old fashioned yarns.  

Or else a really really great mail delivery system and a truly speedy internet connection..
