Easter / Passover / PULP!

 OK, my ball winder seriously needs to go on hiatus. Between startitus and acquiring yarn, I may never finish another project. Or at least that's my fear.

I totally over-planned my knitting for all the holiday traveling I did last weekend. I wound two skeins of BMFA STR Lightweight in hopes of casting on the Catkin shawl... But for whatever reason, it didn't register that I'd need to focus on the pattern. So, I knit on my Hermione socks and worked three pattern repeats of my Harmony shawl. Those are coming along nicely. The socks will definitely be done this weekend!

Backtracking just a bit, last week I was browsing Ravelry and fell in love with the Sothia shawl. I decided to use up the rest of my Jimmy Beans Wool gift certificate on two lovely skeins of Madelinetosh Merino Light. One colorway in Edison Bulb and the other in Antler. (Just like Purl SoHo used in their granny stripe blanket!) Lately, I've been obsessed with neutrals and neons... however I haven't been able to nail down an outfit that doesn't make me look like a glow stick... so why not knit a shawl? And Sothia spoke. Project pics to come!
Easter Ranunculus!
 I hope everyone had a wonderful Passover / Easter! Mine was, although I'm exhausted from all the traveling. Certainly looking forward to a quiet weekend of productive knitting. And now, without further ado, the obligatory photo of Bella!
I love it when she tucks her paws!
Ooh! Before I forget... last Wednesday, I got to see one of my favorite bands in the whole wide world play at Radio City Music Hall... PULP! These guys have been around for a long time and have only recently started touring again. If you haven't heard any of their music... GET THEE TO IT! If you love to dance, sing along and get lyrics in your head, that is! ;-)
Here are some pics from the show:
