Rainbows and Unicorns
I too was sucked into the Kauni crack addiction last week. I cast on this Swallowtail shawl the Saturday before last and finished it a week later. Both the pattern and the yarn are highly addictive, and I found it hard to stop once I started. I have a heap left over too, but I need to have a little break as even though the colours are spectacular, the coarseness of the yarn is very rough.I love it, and was feeling bereft after finishing it. The feeling has now passed, as I'm now currently entralled in knitting a toy unicorn. It's knit in a bazillion flat (!) pieces so will require an enormous amount of finishing, but I'm up for the task and hope to have an FO for show'n'tell early next week.
