Cast on 3 sts...

Knit 6 rows.

Why, yes, I did start another project.  How did you know?

On Sunday I started the beautiful Damson shawlette by Ysolda Teague.  A few weeks ago I was given a gift of a skein of Madeline Tosh Merino Light by my friend, Sheila.  She had visited Loop in Philadelphia and picked up a skein for both of us in the "Nostalgia" colorway.  What a perfect name given the fact that I was about to move to a new city.  The color is one of my favorites:  mauve/gray, very slightly variegated. 

We decided to choose a pattern that we both liked and do a little knitalong, and agreed on Damson.  I'll post a picture of the shawlette-in-progress later.  It's hard to get a good picture indoors at night.  Besides, I don't have much done yet.

I love Madeline Tosh yarn, and that is a beautiful colorway.
