There's a yarn swap being held, and it's still time to sign up for the swap! check out the details HERE.
Oh and the Phoenix shawl? it's a No Go. The yarn told me in no uncertain terms that it did NOT want to be a shawl, would not be subject to being converted into a shawl and would I please look up another project for it.
Hence, it is becoming a top. Don't you hate it when stuff get a mind of their own? altough I must say, it looks so much pretier now... I guess it was right in not letting me hook it into a shawl, as pretty as those turn out. Oh well!
