I love Shetland for shawls. It has just enough halo to looks soft, yet has gorgeous stitch definition and blocks beautifully! Look at this edging:

Wound up this skein of Madelinetosh Merino Lite yesterday and started a little eyelet yoke baby cardigan:

The colorway is “Molly Ringwald”…doesn’t get much more girly than that, eh?

I am off to a legal seminar for the next few days. No spinning, but plenty of knitting time.

Not totally a fail because the shawlette is really pretty, but I ran out of shawl before I got to the last color in the color progression skein. Oops. I probably should have figured out how do a few more repeats of the pattern before the edging, but the designer had actually cautioned against such a thing in a Ravelry thread. That cautionary advise combined with my own ability to mess up math calculations with wild abandon and my inherent laziness made me knit to pattern.

Here is a blocking photo of the shawl with the leftover yarn (see the blue???)
