Mystery Shawl Along #6

I give you Artyarns Ultramerino in colorway #107. This picture is really pretty true to color.

Wound almost the moment Igot home with it!
Knit into a swatch for the Shawl!!! It is really yummy to knit with.

This swatch is on size US 6 addi Turbo Lace needles. I purchased both the yarn and the needles at Full Thread Ahead in Los Altos (love that store!!!). I wanted to go down a needle size and was going to get bamboo needles - I truly like the bamboo the best, just the way they feel. Hollis at the store convinced me to stay with the size 6's and then showed me the addi lace needles. I wasn't sure about either, but I decided to give them a try on her recommendation - I LOVE these needles for this!! And I feel the size 6 is perfect for this project.
What might you ask happened to: Mystic Waters? Secret of the Stole? Bee Fields? Hanami? Icelandic Shawl? and....and.....well......I can't seem to remain project monogamous. As I look forward to the new year and think about New Year's resolutions I realize that the only one I made last year I was unable to keep. I tried to dub 2007 as "The Year of the Finished Project". I was going to finish all those project that are already on the needles and not start anything new. Cough, Cough, I failed miserably :o) Maybe this year I could set a limit on the started projects - say, oh I don't know, not more than (insert number here).....Nah, that won't work!!!
