I do still knit! As evidenced by the completion of my First Leaf Shawl! This project was one of my goals for this year so I'm happy to cross this one off the list.
Pattern: First Leaf by Brenda Patipa
Yarn Lisa Souza TImaru
Colorway: South Pacific
I didn't get my points blocked uniformly but I'll do better next time and I don't expect it will be really noticeable when wearing. LOVED this yarn. The color repeats are so small that there wasn't any of the big pooling of colors that you sometimes see in hand knits. It didn't split at all either.
As far as that list I mentioned above, I think I may avoid a lot of what's left! There aren't any list police that I've seen lately so I think I'll be pretty safe. Happy Stitches!
