Occasionally you just want to cast something on RIGHT THEN!! That means finding yarn that isn't skeined and then choosing a pattern to go with it. Oddly, for me that usually ends up being a shawl or scarf, because a girl with only one neck needs an unlimited number of shawls and scarves!
So between procrastination about how to finish some of the WIPs that have been haunting this place I decided to cast on a Multnomah with some Knitpicks Stroll Multi that was sitting about. I nearly got the whole shawl out of 50g but unfortunately not quite so I had to start a second ball. Having started the ball I decided to finish it and made the feather and fan border quite a bit wider than the pattern asked for.
I also managed to finish off this little tige and it has come out nicely I think. I love Pear Tree Merino and the pattern (Topside Cardi) was quick and easy. My only modification was to do a ribbed button band rather than the garter called for in the pattern. I just felt that it was more cohesive with the rest of the design.
