As I have mentioned a couple times on the blog in recent weeks, my one planned purchase at Stitches Midwest this year was the pattern and yarn for the Bellingrath shawlette.
I wanted to knit this thing so bad, that I pretty much cast on within just a day or two of purchasing the supplies. And last week I finished it up:
It is mega cute! This little shawl is not for me though. Who it is for specifically, I will not say. Let's just say that I plan on knitting the seven bridesmaids in my wedding next year a little something as part of their gift (not to wear to the wedding, though. This yarn is super pretty, but would totally clash!). My goal is to knit one thing a month for my bridesmaids. This will hopefully give me lots of time to spare/give me buffer when I get finishitis. :)
