December wings

Is it December already? It doesn't feel like it. Those darn snapdragons are STILL blooming. They are calling for snow on the weekend, but winter still feels far off. What a weird year for weather it has been....

...either way, I'm still preparing for the cold.
Wingspan is winging right along. It's fun to watch each wedge emerge - especially with the handspun. It moves quicker than I expected too - but it's easy to forget that each row of each triangle is getting shorter as you go.

The pattern calls for eight triangles, but I'm going to see how far my yarn will take me... I may get more!

It doesn't feel like December here either but that's just fine with me. I'm not a fan of the white stuff. I do however like the look of your Wingspan shawl!

Wingspan is such a good way to show off the perfect yarn. Yours look great so far

Pretty! I've had that pattern in my queue for forever. Snow, huh? I just noticed the roses were still blooming here. It's hard to believe it is December but I'm not complaining. The outdoor kitties are very happy right now with the cool not cold temps.

Ooo, that handspun is knitting up very nice indeed. Those colors are so rich, they make me want cake if that makes any sense at all ... I am all for knitting it as long as the handspun can hold out!

Oooo! Lovely!
I made a Wingspan a while ago and remember it as a fun knit. You've got me wanting to make another one...
