Cashmere and Checks

It's been nearly a month since I last posted - much of it due to being busy as the school winds down. Yes, in Korea, the school year ends in February.

Found these two on the way home
It's chilly in Korea, even in the southern city where I live - it snowed today, but didn't stick. I'm in the process of packing up to move to Seoul where I will be living for the next year. I'm very excited about the prospect, but it's still a little overwhelming.

As I work towards moving, I decided to warp my loom again, this time to use up some yarn I had as well to simply create something. I ended up making a pretty checked lightweight shrug. The warp is 8/2 cotton and knitting yarn while the weft is cashmere I received from someone in 2015.

I found that it was too long for one item, so I split it into half and created a shrug which I'm currently knitting the edging. I think the other half will be turned into another shrug as well, or maybe the top of a sweater. I'm still debating.

It's been fun to work on something beautiful, warm and relatively easy these past few weeks. I'm looking forward to moving to Seoul to find more knitting stores - maybe even take a trip to Japan to find some weaving yarns.

The future holds bright opportunities; I'm looking forward to exploring them.

On a side note - did you enjoy the Year of Short Stories? Would you like me to continue? Would you rather a serialized story published weekly or a collection of stories as I did this past year? It's an interesting challenge regardless which I do.
