Dark Cameo 
I have gotten some more work done on my Cameo shawl.  There's something very relaxing about this kind of shawl.  Once you know what's going on with the shaping, you can just knit and relax and watch the shawl grow.
Dark Cameo
The yarn is Malabrigo Mechita in the color Musa and in some ways it reminds me of a dark Lotus (also a Malabrigo color), but there's a little more going on in the Musa.  It's actually a bit darker and richer than it looks in this photo, but it's difficult to get the color quite right.  It's an interesting color that will work really well with my fall and winter wardrobe.

Speaking of seasonal dressing, does anyone else look at the models styled for "summer" with the big piles of scarves wrapped around their necks and wonder why?  Where are people wearing these kinds of things in the summer, Siberia?  It is possible that Texas isn't the market for such things in the summer, although in the spring and fall, I could see it here.  Even with as cool as this spring and early summer has been so far, I still feel no urge to wrap a large scarf/shawl/cowl around my neck several times.

I have no idea what this discussion is about, it just popped into my head and I shared.  You're welcome.

My desire to wrap something around my neck often surfaces when I enter a restaurant or even a store here in Texas in the summer. Some places seem to have "icy" as the default setting on the AC. I often carry a small shawl in the car or even in my purse so I can avoid freezing to death.
