This last round of FatCatKnits Fiber Club was themed Famous Couples. April installment was Brad & Angelina. I've chosen Polwarth/Tussah Silk blend as my fiber base. Lovely!
I've got 5oz of each colorway. The warm colorway is Brad, and the cold colorway is Angelina.
I decided to spin it as two ply for a shawl. This is Brad, 4oz, 435yds, 2ply. I took out the grey parts, and spun it as some kind of gradient.
This is Angelina: 517yds, 2ply
I'm maybe halfway through with knitting this shawl. It's Cameo by Paulina Popiolek. She's got several nice shawl designs. The knitting on this shawl is on hold right now. Two days ago, I've got another Stephen West test knit (shawl), which I'm working on right now, and today we'll get the first clue for the TTL Mystery Shawl KAL as well.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
FYI: Do you remember the story about the "bagel tree"? Yesterday, Denny was circling the young trees in our backyard, with his nose up in the air. I don't want him to bother the local wildlife, so I went to investigate. I thought he might have found a bird's nest in one of those trees, but as I was looking closely, I found an English Muffin, half eaten stuck into a branch fork. I took it out of the tree, and rewarded him with a treat for finding it. I sure would like to know the source of these carby "treats" turning up in our garden via squirrels, which is on a regular basis. It's just that I find pieces often before the dogs do, and remove them.
Happy being happy!
