Project Dreambird Takes Wing

Will you be joining Judy and I as we work on our Dreambird  shawls?   Judy and I have both admired that pattern for a long time and we’re finally going to jump in and give it a whirl.  It’s always more fun when several people are working on the same project – showing photos of their progress, yarns they are using.  Judy will be providing linky boxes so we can share our yarn (share photos of our yarn — no we are not sending you our yarn) and our progress and cheer each other on to the finish.

We plan to start the end of August after Camp Loopy is done and there’s no finish date – it’s not a race, it’s just a project  we plan to start then.  You can find more info in Judy’s blog post here  explaining what we are up to  rather than me repeating it all here.

The first, and probably hardest decision will be choosing what yarn I want to use.  I keep looking at the hundreds of project pages in Ravelry hoping it will help me decide what sort of colors I might like or what kind of yarn I might want.  The bright one on the black,  the more pastel one with white background, fall colors and tan — Noro Silk Garden, Poems Sock Yarn, Unisono, Crazy Zauberball, Woll Butt Sheba (okay that one I tossed in I cause I think it’s a funny name), Drops Fabel, Kauni, Knit Picks Chroma, Mini Mochi —and then some of them I like are done in sport weight, some fingering weight — hmmm wonder how big it would be in dk or worsted weight??? so many choices.  Or you could just use your scraps (you do realize I won’t be going the scrap route and WILL be buying new yarn right????) LOL

So who is up for the challenge?
