FO: Sweet Summer Rays

It has been raining the past four days here in the South. Which forced us to stay inside...and take pictures of FOs.

I have two KALs under my belt now! I got very lucky with the first one -- not only I ended up with a nice shawl but also won a prize from Knitabulls. Pictures of my Gill's Rock on the project page.

The second KAL was for the Sweet Summer Rays shawl designed by Holly Priestley. I love this shawl dearly. It was the project that got me hooked to Nooch fibers! I went for a color out of my comfort zone and cannot be happier about my choice. 






Have a great week! We are heading north to DC in a couple of days. See you next time!
