I bought some Caterpillargreen shawl yarn recently. It's self-striping but in a very clever way. It's designed for top down triangular shawls with a centre spine. The stripes stay the same width all the way through the shawl which is very clever as the rows increase by 4 sts every other row. I'm not that keen on knitting a triangular shaw though so I'm wondering if it'll mess up the stripes if I do a centre insertion of some sort. Again, I don't want to knit a completely plain shawl but I want to include some easy lace but I haven't decided on what yet. Here's an example here of how it knits up. I'm thinking this may be my one of the projects I'll take in my hand-luggage.
Emily wants a pair of Fab Funky Fibre rainbow socks (Vanessa wants a pair too but that'll have to wait till after Christmas, I'm getting a little bit tired of rainbow socks now and it's too late to get more yarn).
So do you think that's enough knitting for 2 weeks? There is a yarn shop 5 mins from where my parents live (or at least here was 2 years ago) so I can buy emergency sock yarn if I run out of knitting.
What are you knitting over the holidays?
