Take a moment to admire my restraint....

... and take a gander at what I am working on rather than a new sweater for me! (Jennifer thinks longingly of the Peasy sweater from a recent post....)
It is the Swallowtail Shawl in the previously blogged Butter Peeps. I LOVE IT! So far the pattern is very easy to understand and keep track of, thank you very much for a legible chart. The yarn is softer and less contrast-y than it looks in photos. The orange and other colors are definitely there, it is just an overall softer, yellow-er impression than I can capture. I am feeling good about my choice here!

Except, MAN is this a heavy laceweight.... Much more like fingering. That doesn't bother me, per se, I am just worried that it will affect the required yardage.... We shall see!

That looks really lovely, and I don't even like yellow much. Can't wait to see how it progresses.
