Shedir

Started the Shedir on Saturday. Was frustrated with the starting of the toes-up Campanula, so I cast on the Shedir that I have been oogling for six months now. Expanding my skillset, I have begun by tackling a cable pattern. Albeit, the cables are only twists and Cable 2 left/right, but it is a start. And I have to admit, this pattern rocks! It is so simple to follow! I am so looking forward to finishing this! Only repeating the braids for four series instead of the five listed for a shorter hat. Whee! The gsMgr called off of work today, and being a holiday that I get paid for, I am sitting at my desk knitting my little heart out. Oh well, for me. Memorial day, 4th of July, and Labor day all come on October 20, 21, and 22 (when I am on the Society Islands {just bought the tickets this weekend}).

I love my Shedir - I always planned on making another one in wool (mine is in "Calmer"), but haven't....what yarn are you using?
