Shetland Triangle in Beach Fog Dream In Color Smooshy
She's done - this darn shawl is done. I'm so glad. I modified it slightly, adding two lace repeats to account for the fingering weight yarn - I think that was the end for me. I am the kind of person that if I have a day scheduled off of work for any reason and my plans fall through - I cannot go into work - can't. I am convinced that I wasn't going - period. The same apparently rings true for lace repeats - when I had done the number the pattern called for, I felt I should be done. I found myself resenting the extra two repeats - can you imagine? I cursed those repeats - but at last I cast off and blocked her today. I think she is pretty - I have been toiling away this week on those stinking extra repeats so I could pack it up for my trip - I plan to wear her with my dress for a wedding this weekend. I will be glad to be wrapped up in my own little knit. I will have a drink with her (heck, I may have three), we'll dance, we'll walk in the sand. We'll make up, I'm sure of it.
here she is with the dress, a perfect marriage...pun intended, wa, wa, wa
I have also been bestowed with some very sweet blog treats lately.
Marisol of Purls Just wanna Have Fun honored me with "I love your Blog" and Morticcia of Two Knits of Ivory gave me a:
