Can't See the Orchard for the Trees

Okay, that's not really the cause. I'm knitting The Sheep Shawl from Fiber Trends. This has been an enjoyable knit so far. I'm about to begin the last "Orchard" chart. From time to time, I've spread out a small section to see what I've been knitting, but I know I'll have to wait for the blocking to see the real beauty of the shawl. There's no need to post a picture, because right now it just looks like a crumpled mess. I'm knitting this with the Misti Alpaca that I received last month. I feel like quite the knitting geek when I smile inwardly at the idea of knitting The Sheep Shawl with Alpaca. Yes, I'm crazy, and I know it.
