Cruising along on my shawl design, I've been paying attention to how much yarn I'm using and how much shawl I plan to knit. I'm pretty sure one skein isn't going to quite be enough. Fortunately, the LYS had another skein in the same colorway, so I picked it up during lunch. I now have zero fear of yarn chicken and might make the shawl larger than originally planned, when I thought I might be able to squeak it out of a single skein. Yarn is @thefiberseed Sprout in Spinel. Needles are #Karbonz by @knitterpride. Yarn ball being wrangled by @theyarnit.
