I'm using some bamboo yarn from my stash and U.S. Size 6 needles.
I've used this yarn before when I knit a Shetland Triangle. It has a wonderful drape and it's so soft! I only hope that I have enough. The pattern calls for 650 yards and I only have 550. I guess I'll be leaving a few repeats out so I'll end up with a shawlette! That's good, because that's all I really want anyway.
I'd be further along, but in case you've been watching the news, we had a tornado rip through Massachusetts. We live about an hour away from where it hit, but both of my sisters and my parents were right in the path. They're all okay. My parents live with one of my sisters and they lost a huge tree which fell across the neighbor's driveway and is presently blocking his garage. Thankfully, it missed the house. They also lost an outdoor shed and now my father's tools are distributed all around the neighborhood. They'll probably be without power for a couple more days, so today they're going to try and buy a Coleman lantern. They'll be camping inside instead of outside! In any event, it's hard to knit lace and watch the television at the same time, especially when you know the area! I had to rip out several rows since I wasn't giving it my proper attention.
So that's my excuse for not being further along. I wonder what excuse I can come up with for next week?
