It's a beautiful spring day on the coast of Maine!

I finished my blue-green Linus shawl a while ago.
I also went to my WIP bin and took out an Absolutely Fabulous Throw kit by Colinette that someone had started, given up on it, gave it to me, and I never worked on it ... but thought I would, someday. Well, someday came. The kit originally sold for around $180, contained your choice of four throw patterns, and had enough of eight beautiful Colinette colors in a variety of yarns to make the throw. The yarns are still available, but sadly the pattern is not.
See? It really is Absolutely Fabulous. Pogo settled down on it as I was putting on the fringe. She gave it her seal of approval.
I finished spinning my Maine Coast yarn.
Three skeins (total of 385 grams) of 2-ply fingering weight yarn. It's gonna be great!
What is on my needles now?
An Elizabeth Zimmerman Pi Shawl using fingering weight scrap yarn (I got tired of making endless Linus shawls) ...
... and a red cardigan for me. It's sweater #4 for those who are counting.
Keep knitting and spinning! Remember, you are beautiful!
