I finally did it! I cast on a project just for me! I call it the Gold Dust Shawl because it is knit with Wool in the Woods Gold Dust Lottery colorway in purple/pinks.
The yarn started off a bit tricky but after finally settling on a pattern I like and getting comfortable with the needles, it has been going pretty well and I have the pattern pretty much memorized already.
My one "me" sticking point is going to be when I go to block it because I really don't have a place to block her at my home without one of my children interrupting its rest. So I will most likely have to do it at my Mom's house and therefore she might get stolen by Mom. I am open to sharing with Mom but, I am not gifting her to Mom. This is supposed to be for me.
