Knitting Progress

I have been making progress on the green Wallaby. The pocket flap is finished and waiting for the body to grow another couple inches. I love the color.
Then there is this. I bought the yarn pack from Yarn Hollow last May at the Fiber Fiesta in Greenville. I love the soft colors. The colorway is called Dove Gray.
There is an alpaca wool blend, a wool silk blend, merino, mohair boucle and a brushed mohair. The pattern is easy, just a few rows of each color, and adding an eyelet row whenever I feel like it. It is going really fast.
This is after just a couple days of knitting.
And here is a closeup, showing the different yarns and the texture they bring to the shawl.
Of course, all that changing of yarns does have its drawbacks.
