Remember when I dyed some bare Palette yarn (here and here).

Here are the pinks and purples. I cast on for a shawl. Kind of a practice shawl before I make the one for my mom. I like how it is coming along so far. It is just plain, no lace pattern planned. I started with straight needles, just until it gets a little bigger, then I will probably switch a circular.

Yarn: hand dyed Palette yarn
Needles: size 9 Brittany straight

Speaking of Knit Picks Palette, my order arrived.
Here are some of the new heathered colors.

Heathered Palette yarn

I like them alot! I am thinking a top down cardigan of this weight would be nice for indoor wear. I am glad that they are adding more colors to their current classic yarn lines. Now if they would just add more colors of Gloss. *sigh*

I love the new Wool of the Andes heathers - they almost make me wish that I'd waited to make my Highland Triangle & Wool Peddler shawls! As it is, I'm trying to convince myself I need another shawl while I'm practicing lace patterns on the worsted weight shawls I'm knitting for charity.
