Spring 春天; Happy Chinese New Year

Project:  Spring 春天
Pattern Ascalon by Christelle Nihoul (Ravelry free download)
Yarn:  Twisted Sisters Zazu Hand Paints, 100% Merino
Yardage:  1170 yards in stash
Needles: Size 6
Cast on: December 31, 2013
Notes: The twisted stitches and small cables make this shawl a delicate and fun knit. The yarn is very soft, and the colors are so vibrant. The row of double yarn overs on the edge seem to beg some sparkly dangly things. Is it possible to add "after thought" beads or pearls?

Despite the snowy and super cold long winter everywhere else in US, we are having a very dry warm winter. There has not been any significant rain all season. But look, spring is here (before dry leaves from the fall are done falling!). Today is Chinese New Year, the year of the galloping horse (signifies strength, movement, adventure). For those who celebrate, have a wonderful year of horse, may you and your family happy and healthy!

Happy Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog, and leave me a comment!
