Everyone ready?

Is everyone getting set in the starting blocks?!? I was shocked to see that tomorrow is the 10th! It snuck up on me somehow!

I swatched today to make sure I wasn't going to run into any problems with the cast on for the flower basket shawl. I'm really happy I'm using 2 strands of laceweight yarn as the pattern calls for. I dyed the yarn myself, and while I really enjoy the subtle variations in handdyed solids I also don't really want any splotchy tendencies on a lace shawl.

Here it is if you didn't see it on my blog before:

Good luck everyone! Don't forget to pace yourselves and stay hydrated...
