So I cast on for the Snow Queen. As soon as I started knitting my asthma started to bother me. So I went and used my medicine. Then I come back later and the same thing happens. I'm beginning to think that maybe my lungs and Kid Silk don't agree with each other. So I'll put it aside for now and try again in a couple of days.
Instead I am going to cast on for my Pretty As a Peacock Shawl. I am using Knitpicks Bare, silk/merino blend. It has a very nice shine to it and is soft and smooth as well. I am looking forward to working with it.
