Because I love color! 

This long, dreary, cold, icy, snowy, interminable winter is getting to me. My spring break last week was hardly that, and they are calling for snow this week! Color is a great comfort. So, I pulled out the yarn that I had spun this winter, Reef by Fiber Optic.

And I turned to my new book, Lovely Knitted Lace by Brooke Nico to choose a pattern.

While this is not the pattern that I really want to knit from the book, I like the look the yardage requirements were almost perfect.  Poppy Shawl.

Here is my start.  At least the sun was shining for photos.
