However........yeah but..... and uh, well....
I don't like the color. PEWP!
But all is not lost. I decided to send it off to a new home.
Mary Max. LOVES IT! And that's all that matters. I work with Mary. She is my friend at work. She KNITS! She totally gets the knitting thing. So she appreciates it.
Here is the ever popular "un-blocked" shot. Or as Jennifer (Holiday Yarns) likes to call "boiled ass" cause lets face it... unblocked lace looks like, well... boiled ass right?
Well, I guess I need to make one for myself now....but not now, now.
I have gone back to finishing up my light blue sweater. I may not finish it by the end of April, but I sure as heck am giving it a good shot.

It's been 6 years since I have started blogging. It may not seem so at this new blog, but if you click the link to my old blog you will see. SIX YEARS! I know I haven't been a bloggin' lately, but I am trying to do better.
I say this all the time, but the people I have met through blogging have been wonderful and inspirational. Thank you for leaving me comments (even though I haven't figured out yet how to respond to most of you with this new blog)
And YES, I did get wax on the yarn.... sad face..... oh well.
ps - the husband want credit as production assistant for lighting the candles. Round of applause!

Not bad, not bad at all. But if you go to my project page on Ravelry you see I have 6 WIPS. SIX! And guess what I started yesterday?
Do you think I can?

Saw this at http://soulemama.typepad.com/soulemama/ and wanted to do it for some time.
I know I am not supposed to say any words, but yay spring!

I decided to whip up another 198 Yards of Heaven Shawlette for her.
I can't say enough good things about this pattern. It is quick, well written, and easy. You only need 198 yards! Which is a typical skein of worsted weight wool. Well perhaps not typical....
She loved it! Here she is modeling it:
Below is a picture of her sister-in-law modeling it too. I think she wants one now!
Yay! A success!

Right then! Shall we? I started this shawl in January and finished it in February....yes, it's already a moldy oldy.... But beautiful none the less.
I made this out of Schaefer Yarn Company Anne - Sock yarn. You can't beat the yardage on this yarn AND the colors are fab. It was for a class I was supposed to teach last weekend but because of my back blowout I have rescheduled it for the following weekend.
I do so love Evelyn Clark's patterns. She is a true genius.
I have so many projects going on right now which is not surprising for a knitter right? I was trying to be good like last year and only start one project at a time. But who cares. I know they will all get done.
