I Couldn't Help Myself

All of the new yarn that I purchased a couple of weeks ago is now wound up into neat little cakes and sitting on my dining room table. Last night, as I was walking by the table, I just couldn't help myself. I had to grab that Ravelry Red Malabrigo sock yarn and a crochet hook and start making a shawl. Yes, I have several yarny things started. Yes, I have deadline projects to complete. Yes, I have "start-itis."
With my size "H" crochet hook I started yet another Seraphina Shawl. It's my go-to pattern for quick, lacy and gorgeous. I've made several Seraphina Shawls in different weight yarns. I love the delicate look I get using sock yarn. The Malabrigo yarn is in varying shades of red. The lace pattern looks fantastic in an almost solid color. I'll be keeping this shawl for myself

Thanks for the compliments, Ladies!!
I'm thinking I might add a little red bead at each scalloped point when I finish. It will give the shawl a bit of weight and glitter.

It is beautiful and you are so quick!! I must admit it makes me a bit sick. How do you do it?? I am dying to finish my coat and I think I knit all of 3 rows on the collar last night....someday it will be done.
