Twice in One Month

It's the second full moon in the same month tonight.  By some definitions, that makes it a blue moon.  How can I not take advantage of it?

Actually, I just need to get the details of this project up before I forget them.

Pattern: Cosette Shawl by Never Not Knitting
Yarn:   Malabrigo Organic Cotton, two skeins in Turquesa (main color) and one skein of Pimienta (edging, which means actually a very little bit and what am I going to do with the rest of it?).
Needles: Surprisingly, not as big as I thought.  US 8/5mm Addi Turbos.

I expect to need this information, because now I have to do a picot bind-off.  I hate picot bind-offs. I anticipate this project will get shunted aside for something else in very short order.

Maybe so I can finish this?

Yarn: Handmaiden Sea Silk in Ruby
Needles: US 4/3.5mm Addi Turbos, which is surprisingly small.

As long as I knit at least a little bit on each today, that will makes two things I can now say happened (at least) once in a blue moon.

I miss the Blog. Maybe it's time to do something about that? 

While I organize my knitting and my thoughts, go take a look at Matt's latest.

See you soon.
