Squee Sunday

My prize for entering the Crystal Palace Yarn Miters Knit Along came in! It was a random number drawing done from all the finished projects that were entered. I entered in the Baby Dragon Scarf I made out of Panda Superwash.

My prize was 2 skeins of CPY Aria in the colorway Carmen!

Where...in the world...is.. CARMEN SANDIEGO?

It’s one of their newest yarns and not much has been made with it yet. There’s been a few dropstitch scarves, but because people have already been doing them and there’s not much pattern variety yet, I feel like it is my duty to make something else with it.

I’m gonna go with a Self-Fringing Shawl, but not with two strands held together. I’ll do one ball up to the middle, and one ball back. I think it’ll work rather well. I haven’t decided if I’ll keep it on size 15 needles or drop it down to size 13 since I won’t be holding it double, but I still want loose stitches to show off the yarn. I guess we’ll see!

What did you squee about this week?
