I was hoping to be able to share with you my new yarn purchases from the fabby Woolfest (see last post), and maybe even a new WIP using said new goodies, but as I have not yet got them back from my very own (and very lovely) personal transportation and storage assistant Naomi (lol!) this is not possible. Fear not, I will be getting my sticky mitts on them later this afternoon *squeal!* and I shall be casting on asap. And in the meantime I shall show you the first project I have lined up.
So I present to you the gorgeous Travelling Woman:

Beautiful, right?! I have been wanting to knit a shawl/wrap for a little while but had been waiting to find the right pattern and the right yarn. And I think now I have :)
So I'm thinking of knitting it with this, which I'm pretty sure is the exact yarn I bought at Woolfest on Saturday - I know it was this exact colourway, grey with cute little turquoise flecks *heart*. I saw it, but didn't think I could ever even think about taking on a lace-weight project. But I just couldn't stop thinking about it, so I decided what the heck, went back and to my delight this single skein was still there waiting for me, and so of course I snapped it right up.
