Tuscany shawl class and stuff (photo heavy)

First of all I have to show you the yarn, because it's so pretty!

Yarn for Tuscany shawl
Indian handspun 100% pure silk. It's like knitting with pink butter.

Now the shawl

That's about as much as I did in the class. Only I did not knit that in the class. I ripped what I did there, there was some fudgeing and stupid corrections on that shawl, and after thinking about how the fabric looked I also felt the need to change needles.
You can also see the variegation in the yarn a bit better in this photo.

Theresa WANTS the needles!


We headed to downtown Oslo

to see the Strikknikk exhibition at the Decorative arts and design museum.

Then food at a nice little place called Bacchus

That's Theresa, trying to hide behind a nacho, Amy and Sandy.

Also I have a new little knitting bag, that I love!

Felisi is a very smart woman!

And a new work in progress that's looking like it's going to be very pretty!

My socalled scarf
My socalled scarf. There is one thing I find odd though. I'm sure I cast on 46 or 48 stitches, there are now 44 and I can not for the life of me find out where I've dropped or lost stitches. Hopefully I will not loose any more. I'm not aming for a triangular scarf!

Wow, you're having such a great time!

Isn't My So-Called Scarf amazing? It's so much fun to knit and looks great in so many different yarns. I adore the colors you picked for yours and love the striping effect.
