Float-ing

 Float  is coming along. It's an interesting pattern called "Applied pooling". Basically, you have a yarn with more than one color, and you pick a color and whenever you come to that color you knit a special stitch that uses all the color.

The yarn I'm using is from Chasing Rabbits, who designed the shawl and I guess invented the idea of applied pooling. The yarn is 75% grey and 25% pink and anytime I hit the pink, I do a daisy sort of stitch.

I'm not crazy about the 'holes' around the stitch but on the whole I really like this. 

I have three balls of this yarn and I can't imagine I'll be able to be engaged in this one long enough to use all three balls but we'll see.

In other news--yesterday morning there was a rainstorm in the sky that never made it down to earth. But it was interesting!

I read "applied poofing," which sounds like a cross between logistics and silliness.

That shawl is pretty, but I love your last picture best!

I love that shawl -- and the process. It reminds me that I bought some yarn once that had a "stitch-y gimmick" pattern with it (similar concept, different look). Maybe you'll inspire me to dig it out and figure out why I never started in the first place. . .

I think the shawl is a very cool way to use the yarn. Nice unrainstorm!
