Of many, I'm sure, because it's so freakin' fun. And so fast. The 100-yard dash of shawls. This one became so big so fast, I had to block it on a camping pad and a yoga mat held together with giant paper clips.

It's far more bright than the original, which is by far...um...better. So I think next time I'll go more subdued, maybe in dark blues. I love how each one is a work of art. And this one is gorgeous and I'm sure someone with brighter taste in clothing will super love it. I just like the blackness of the other one (which reminded me of that thing we used to do where we colored really hard with black crayon over other colors, then used a pointy object to carve a picture out of the black. I can still smell the wax.)
I'm going to go hang this one on the wall at the shop. I'm finishing so many handknits, I can't wear them and they're piling up all over the house - stuck in obscure windowsills, under the kitchen booth, in a box under the bed, I am not kidding. These are but a few of the places.
I plan to teach a 2-session class in choosing yarn, getting started, and using the bind-off method I've come up with. At Abundant Yarn in May. Maybe if I make a blue/black one I'll keep it for trips to the beach or camping.
