As These Things Happen

I have been using my Wool Peddler's Shawl a lot recently. I keep it in my car and put it in my lap if I'm cool while I'm driving or bring it with me if I'm going somewhere I think I will be chilly. This weekend I was very happy to have it since I went for a walk and it was a lot colder than I was expecting. I had it wrapped around my neck and shoulders keeping me quite warm. Then it started to rain and I pulled it up over my head and stayed warm and dry until I got where I was going.

This has lead me to realize that I want some more big, worsted-weight shawls. I looked through my Ravlery queue and found Olatz. I received the pattern as a gift back in January from knittybarb on Ravlery. It would be lovely in the Fleece Artist Blue Faced Leicester Aran I got at the November retreat. I needed a size 8 circular needle. I went to my needle case and had none. Hmmm. Where could it have been? I searched my hibernating projects on Ravelry and found that I had started 198 Yards of Heaven last December as a gift but changed my mind about it for some reason. I never ripped it out so it was still on the needles. I searched and searched and eventually found it. Hmmm. It wasn't so bad. The Cascade Eco Duo is pretty nice. Hmmm...



Olatz? What Olatz?
