Yarn: Knit Picks Merino Style in Maple (6 Skeins)
Pattern: Wool Peddler's Shawl from Folk Shawls
Time: Can you believe this.... 1 WEEK!!!!!! Started it on Monday, finished it Sunday night.

In other news, this past Thursday was, as you may know, the Chinese New Year. And my Thursday night knit night had a little party where you were supposed to bring a Chinese dish. Well... I say ick to Chinese food. So I made this instead...

The symbols mean Friendship, Creativity and Knitting. How neat is that? I was so pleased with how nice it turned out. Yay cake!

It's fabulous! The cake is pretty fun, too.

Lovely shawl, hun! And the cake looks scrumptious!

And kudos on the Chinese characters, those aren't easy to do... :)

TTYL, sweetie!

Oh My God! You are too cool for words. I LOVE the shawl. I was teased by your scanned photo and am excited to see the final result. And the cake! How awesome is that? Talk about creativity. I hope you saved that piece for yourself.

PS word verification is so trippy, dude

Love it! Oh, can you read symbols in Japanese? I have knitting books written in Japanese I have no hope of ever understanding! Remind me why I thought buying 3 books in Japanese was a good idea?Gorgeous!!!! The shawl is one of my favorites. OH great, Tie One On, Kiri and now Wool Peddler. When will I find time to knit any of these?
