I have a cowl and I'm headed to my happy place. I dare you to try to stop me.

I decided to make myself a Rivendell Smoke Ring out of my Tempted Lovely Grrl from the last club shipment. It will be FO #1/22 for the year. Here it is blocking away happily:

Sorry for the iphone pic, but taking a picture with my good camera would require me to get up from the couch and I am frankly too tired to move. Thank God that tomorrow is Friday. After work, I will be heading to Tempted Estates for a lovely long weekend with several knitters (including both of the Knitgirllls). I call Tempted's house my happy place, and after the week I've had at work, I may not return.

In other news, I am participating in a small shawl swap (say that 10 times fast) on Ravelry. They drew names last night, but I can't tell who I got. I am going to do the Leaf Shawl. This weekend I'll ask Stacy to dye some nice spring green yarn with brown flecks (very similar to the first project pic on the rav page). I think it'll be beautiful! I wonder who drew my name?

Very nice! The colours you have in mind for the Leaf Shawl sound perfect.
I'm having some friends over for knitting this weekend too!

That pattern looks amazing, and I'm sure the colors you want for it will look great!
