Next Big Thing

Not one to rest on my laurels, I plunge right in to the next project. (Baby blanket? What baby blanket?) There are two ounces of 50/50 cashmere & silk maturing in the stash, which would be perfect for a shawl. Never been a fan of the garter stitch, but a swatch of this stuff, washed and blocked, unpinned and admired, carried around in the mouth of a greyhound, rewashed and reblocked, looks good to me. Off to The Yarn Lounge for consultation. Stewart and Melanie listen to my description of the dream shawl, point me in the right direction, pat me on the back for encouragement, and send me off with hope in my heart and that peculiar itchy/twitchy feeling in my fingers.
