i've got a fever...

and the only prescription is more 198 yards shawls!  I made one out of cascade eco wool on size 11 needles for David's mom (it took more than 198 yds and is considerably larger than my first one, but who's counting?), and I'm almost through another one in 220 for my mom...only three rows left.  I already have yarn for at least two more lined up...what is wrong with me?  and what is so mesmerizing about this pattern?  I don't know...but I do know that I'm loving it...and David is strangely loving helping me block (I'm not complaining!).

Speaking of blocking, I know I promised pictures, and I know there have been none...I accidentally left the shawl at my dad's house last weekend, but I'll be there again tomorrow, so I promise beyond promise that there will be pictures then!  And maybe if you guys are really lucky there will be finished pictures of the eco wool version and blocking pictures of the new 220 one.

Also, I have made one fiber trends felted clog...the other to be forthcoming when I'm over whatever this sickness is that makes me want to knit nothing but one skein shawls ;)
