April Showers

Does the saying of April showers bring May flowers include metaphorical showers? Because April so far has been real, real tough.

A few weeks ago, we unexpectedly had to say goodbye to our cat. I have been devastated ever since. I’ve barely been able to muster the energy to get to work, let alone knit but last night I was finally in the mood to start something new.

If you remember, during the Rose City Yarn Crawl, I picked up a skein of Alexandra’s Crafts Agate Beach in Black Gems Purple.

Brand: Alexandra’s Crafts
Yarn: Agate Beach
Color: Black Gems Purple

I’ve been itching to try making a shawl again and I knew this yarn would be PERFECT. So I poked around on Ravelry for a while and found the pattern Eyeblink by Heidi Alander that totally pushes all my buttons and will work for the yardage I have!

I briefly considered doing a gauge swatch but it’s a shawl…so, whatever.

I’m sure this won’t come back to bite me in the ass.

In the meantime, I cast on and have made some progress!
