Girl From the Grocery Store Shawl

I joined a KAL rather late into the game but I managed to crank out the project in less than 5 days including time to block and dry it.  The pattern is called Girls From the Grocery Store by Joji Locatelli.  The yarn was dyed by my friend Holly.  Her business, Fish Belly Fiber Works, is on Etsy. Her yarn is amazing.  The photos don't do it justice.  These colors are cancan and oatmeal. I prefer taking the pictures outside with more natural lighting but it's so windy out right now.  My friend Shannon got me 4 skeins of this lusciousness for Christmas :). The little progress markers were made by my friend Faith.  She is "Distracted Knitter" on Etsy and Instagram.

There was no way we were going to miss the game with Row 4 tickets.  Mother Nature was a pain in the ass so we took the train into Boston.  Then the train broke down.....but we made it to the Garden with 20 minutes to spare for puck drop.  Probably the last time I'll see my boys play in person this season.  #BostonBruins
