Yarn: Berroco Vintage on size 8 needles
I love the stitch definition I am getting with this yarn. And the color, well, I am drawn to shades of olive to lime green and pumpkin to carrot orange tones, what can I say? I am lagging behind the KAL pack, I am still on Clue #2. I don't plan to do the twisted rib until I get closer to the hem area and I am not sure if I will do the button placket or not. I plan to make full length sleeves, not the 3/4 bell shaped ones.
Yarn: Cascade Eco+ on size 8 needles.
I started this pattern at the urging of my friend Julie (I should start calling her "The Enabler of the Nth degree). I kind of missed Amy Beth's mention of it on her podcast last week, but it sounds like she labels it as happy knitting too.

Yarn: Quince and Co Finch in the Nasturtium colorway on size 4 needles.
I ripped out my first attempt with the Lion Brand Sock-Ease, it was just too limp. This one seems better, the strand of yarn is much more round than the Sock-Ease. Enabler of the Nth Degree gifted me this pattern. Thanks Julie!

My yarn is on order and I figured I should put my mini skeins (from the Cape Escape yarn tasting) to good use. The mini skein color is orange, my shawl will be knit in UV, a bright purple.
