A little knitting, a little yarn...

I've been working on this for awhile. It will eventually be the Queen Silvia shawl from Knitted Lace of Estonia, by Nancy Bush.

Eventually it will look like lilies of the valley, but right now it doesn't look like much. Lace never does at this stage, I guess.

I also added to the stash today. Here are the latest additions, although the photo doesn't do justice to any of them. They all look very blu-ish, which they are, but you really can't see the colors. I'm not sure what's wrong with the camera. I tried an outdoor photo and then an indoor one. Neither worked, but this one is the best.

From left to right, Three Irish Girls Westerly SeaSock (70% merino, 30% seacell), colorway: Estuary

All For the Love Of Yarn Sumptuosity (70% Baby Alpaca, 20% silk, 10% cashmere), colorway: Bluebell

Three Irish Girls Beckon Stretch Merino (100% superwash), colorway: Aurora Borealis
