The weather turned a bit warmer, so I got interested in Spring knits. This is the Clementine Shawlette from the Spring Interweave Knits. I'm doing it in a fresh green color of Debbie Bliss Pure Silk--"Clemen-lime," if you will. It's going to be a Christmas present for my aunt, so you can see that I'm getting a jump start.

The pattern is fun and keeps your interest, especially at the ends of the shawlette, but is also easy enough to memorize once you get to the main section. I got 3 skeins but may end up needing a 4th. We'll see. It's going pretty quickly.

I have started another project that unfortuantely is not going as quickly. I plan to do a sleeveless version of the Leaf Lace Pullover from Loop-d-Loop. But I'm having trouble modifying the shape of the top to work the way I want. I've had to rip it out several times, so all I have right now is just the collar.

The yarn is some lovely Berocco Touche in a shade somewhere between torquoise and sky blue. I got it from Olgajazzy when she was destashing. One woman's trash is another's treasure!!
