Dancing Crayons

This is one of the projects Penny encouraged me to start while she was here. The ball of yarn beside the mitered square is Fiesta La Boheme yarn in the Taos colorway that I used as my inspiration for finding yarns to knit the Dancing Crayons pattern by Chris Bylsma.
All the yarns for the shawl (poncho? ponchette? shawloncho?) were bought from the various yarn stores Meg, Penny and I visited in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York on our way to the NY Sheep and Wool Festival at Rheinbeck last fall.
I finished the first square last night and am ready to cast on for square #2. (Thanks, Meg for the pointers and help with the instructions!) Only four squares in all, so it should be a quick project. (Except for the fact that I'm knitting on four other projects, too. Oh well, hurrah for a bit of mess and disorder!)

Thanks, Donna and Jan! I love turquoise, aqua, and robin's egg blue right now - and I think the copper and tans off-set them well.

It pleases ME anyway!
