Rowan Kidsilk Spray yarn
Today I learned that sometimes procrastination turns out to be simply another step towards synchronicity. I bought this gorgeous Rowan Kidsilk Spray yarn on sale about two years ago, because I loved the gentle and light mix of green, brown and yellow. I could imagine myself wearing a flowing shawl in the early autumn days when the air just acquires that crisp edge and the colour of the leaves starts to shift from green into multitude of shades. However I kept on putting off casting on.

Today I finally decided to choose a pattern from the many in my Ravelry queue, only to stumble on this new one, which looks exactly like I imagined my shawl (triangular, simple, with leaves). Plus I can read both English and Russian instructions. Hence today I have the perfect yarn and the perfect pattern; tomorrow I will cast on.
