Talk Derby to Me

Oh yah! Go Baby, Go. Talk Derby to Me (in your best Poison tune)

Louisville and the first Saturday in May = DERBY. For many it's par-tay time. For us, it's just another day.

For me, it was the day I blocked my MYSTIC LIGHT Shawl! Here is mine done in Dream in Color Smooshy Yarn - Lipstick Lava colorway.

I enjoyed everything about this KAL. The pattern, while easy to follow it had it's challenging areas, such as cables and knitting pattern on both sides. The yarn, fabulous; first time I had ever worked with it. So soft and very easy to work with. While it did rub a wee bit of red on my hands while working, that's normal for brightly hand dyed yarns and fibers. Before I blocked it, I rinsed throughly in cool water til it ran clear, so it's all set now.
