I have finally completed the Untried Northern Isles Technique project for November: behold the Faroese Man Shawl:

I had skipped over October's luxury fiber project. I found myself in the midst of an existential crisis brought about by the amount of yarn in my possession. The thought of buying more, and spending a lot of money on it, was too much for this Yankee. So, I ferreted around the stash and uncovered 2 hanks of 100% cashmere that I was saving for a very special project.
While all of this angst is going on, I'm deeply involved in the Camel Knitters' 2013 fundraiser.

I hope your Thanksgiving plans involve lots of down time for knitting and other assorted fun.
