Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

WIP Wednesday

Something new...
 I'm test knitting a shawl pattern.  So far I'm lovin' it!!!!  
But my camera doesn't take true color pictures.  The true color of the yarn is turquoise.  It is Crystal Palace Panda Silk.  Love it!  The shawl starts at the neck and works its way out.  We'll see how much I love it when I get to 100s of stitches, lol

I worked a little on the Advent Calendar Scarf.  

I knitted day 7 & 8.  I'd like to get through day 12 finished to be half way done but realistically I might get through day 10.

This scarf is fun to knit.  By the time you've worked through the lace pattern of the day, you're done with it.  So no getting bored with the same pattern.  Win-Win!  I'm also learning some new lace patterns.

Don't panic... I'm still working on socks in between working on the lace.  lol.   I'll have some more pictures of the socks later.

That Advent Calendar Scarf is going to be so cool. I'd like to do that someday. Liking your shawl too! I absolutely loved knitting with the Panda Silk. It's wonderful!

That shawl looks delicious! I will have to try Panda Silk. Love the scarf too. How long will it be when finished?

These are both beautiful, but I love the Advent Calendar scarf. It's so intricate and delicate looking.
