WIP Saturday!

Had I posted WIP Wednesday, it would have looked just like last week, but with more done.  I'm on the last repeat of Citron, and ready to do the final ruffle.  It's been a nice, mindless knit, but frankly I'm tired of purling.  I think the 520 stitches that make up the final ruffle/ruche will be done in garter stitch instead of stockinette.  I don't think that slight texture difference will harm the appearance of the shawl, and in fact, it may be an interesting twist on it. 

What I have been working on, however, is this:
My friend Elizabeth offloaded some of her SABLE stash of spinning materials, and I'm paying it forward.

Take this for example

 Beautiful, isn't is?  But this color

 Frankly makes me look ill.  As gorgeous as it is. 

 So what to do, but spin it up,

Ply it
And pass it along!
I can't wait to give this to a friend :-D
