The last time I mentioned my knitting, back here, I claimed I was swinging by my LYS to get yarn for travel knitting Gretel. I walked into Knit New Haven, June & Linda were unpacking these Be Sweet shawl kits, and that's all she wrote. Many yards of fine kid  mohair stockinette size 11us needles, on the bias. My only hesitation was deciding on colors.

But I am loving every inch of it. Very zen , just floating along, me, my knitting, up in the air. And doncha love that green? I took it to West Hollywood SnB last night, lookie here, my knitting and I are on my fabulous hostess friend Ellen Bloom's blog.

Great colors, and Be Sweet is an economic development project that benefits low income women in South Africa, but I bet you already knew that. And keep the hipstamatic coming. Does it have a virutal flashcube?

Thanks for the shout-out, Gale! The WeHo SnB LOVED meeting you too!

The shawl is gorgeous!

I can always justify Be Sweet purchases, for the reason sighted by Mary Lou. I am sooo into rationalizing my habits.

You chose great colors and that shawl is going to be fabulous!

Poor Gretel. But I'm sure she understands...
Excellent colors!

Butter and dip me some of dat! I want a hipstamatic--and an antihistaminatic, too these pollen-filled days.

OK, your colorway reminds me, IN A GOOD WAY, of Gatorade, or G, or whatever they're calling it these days.

(Joseph berated me for giving him Gatorade at baseball: "It's FULL of SUGAR!!!!")

Also giggling uncontrollably at We-Ho.

A sort of anagram of WoHeLo, by the way.
