Shew! The LYS tour is finished, and I think a good time was had by all. Sooo, now that my design for our own Renaissance Yarns was unveiled as our free one skein pattern given out on the tour, I can unveil it here. Soooo, he she is (above). You can find the pattern on Ravelry via my profile, which is knittease. It's a top-down triangular shawl made from Schafer Yarns, called "Audrey". It was an absolute dream to work with, a wool and silk blend. Handpainted, it comes in a whole array of gorgeous colors.

For my next trick, I've entered Alpaca with a Twist's shawl design contest. Shipped it today, in fact. Crossing my fingers it will get there by the deadling...
