My own little bit of spiderweb, making a corner square. Alison at SpinDyeKnit has waved a shawl pattern in front of me- I am helpless, of course, to resist. Fortunately, we have a guest and the swift is in the guest room. So I am slogging heroically on the hairy nightmare of a shawl, made in weird colors that I plan to over dye. I won't make the garment first, again. I'll dye the yarn and then make the garment, as this is so ugly that it is hard to work on. And, even though I have dyed yarn hundreds of times, I have nagging doubts that the shawl will still be ugly.

Here, can I come rescue you with pretty yarn to knit with instead? What would you like to go play with? Trust me, I've got lots.
