Mawata silk hankies is awfully expensive, but so is abandoning two sets. I have turned my attention to the Thin Ice shawl. Thank goodness I put it on my 12 in 2012 list to keep me focused. I need to finish this before I can get back my Tom Bihn knitting bag which is my best. This bag was designed by the knitty.com crew. D loves his tri-fold travel laptop case.
Seafoam scarf because of the pie crust edge. I haven't swatched yet, but I put each line of the chart on a separate 3x5 card for ease of knitting in travel.
Mittens for Me knit a long. I think I'll use the rowan fine tweed I bought at Black Sheep. I have 98 yards times 4. Nope. The pattern asks for 275 yards but forgets to say "each colour". Phooey. I have more yarn. Pink and brown? Green and ivory? Probably the gifted electric tree. Good thing I checked on Ravelry.
I also bought Craft Activism which is an excellent book to buy when magazines are running $15.
There are so many new ideas sprouting in the February sunshine!
