Meanwhile...

While I get my Desperately Seeking Ditto sweater going, I'm working on my Shawl of Many Colors. This explosion of color reminds me of antique scrap quilts women made from feed bags and their husband's old shirts. I've always loved those masterpieces.

Based loosely on the Betsy Coyne's Fiesta Shawl available on Ravelry, I am using worsted weight and doubled sock yarn to create this fun and easy project. I own an embarrassingly large mountain of yarn, so this little stashbuster is perfect for me. My plan is to add a natural-colored, crocheted, cotton lace edging when I'm done.

The pics below show how the quilt quickly grows one kaleidoscopic square at a time.
