The Vintage Shawl pattern is from Runway Knits.
I was tempted to cast on because that Karabella yarn is so luscious, but I want to use US9 circs and they are currently occupied. Curses! Foiled again!
A political aside: Having watched at least parts of the DNC and the RNC, I just gotta say that, were I a Republican, I would be really embarrassed at how BORING they are. I'm an independent who leans to the left, and I am also a Libra who favors a balanced view, but OMG. Absolutely stultifying. Anyway, regardless of where your politics fall, be(come) informed and VOTE come November. And if you don't vote, then don't complain.
