It's soft and I love the colors. The ribbing pattern makes a cushy and pliant fabric, nothing tight and firm like ribbing at the bottom of a sweater.

Back to the white shawl, which is really moving along. I'm finishing both the shawl and the first Robicheaux story by James Lee Burke, by audio book. The reader is remarkable.
A final pic showing the colors and the nice ribbing stitch. This requires a K1B (knit 1 below) which means you put the right hand needle into the stitch below the one you think you should knit. This is what makes the ribbing so pliant. In some examples, the same result is created by using yarn-overs and then knitting them with the regular stitch on the way back.

Oh, that book arrived about the Brioche Stitch. It's complete and thorough. It covers the intro stitch for beginners and the complex ones to use after greater mastery has been achieved. I'm studying.
Sunny here, blue skies, quite lovely. I was able to take pictures outside so I'll put in just one of those.
