Bill has been super nice and shared his germs with me. I felt myself going downhill last night and woke-up with a super sore throat today. I'm hopped up on Vitamin C so I'm going to keep it simple this post.
We went over to my parents' house for an Easter lunch and Mary and I went wondering around in the woods I grew up playing in. She found a few different plants she liked and wanted to take home. Food was good and so was hanging out.
I have been working on something for someone at the Mon knit-night who had a baby. I thought I was making a baby blanket, but it turns out I am making a play mat. Silly yarn wanting to be something different than I thought of.
Another Skywalker shawl is in the works too. I'm already at the edging. I remember the pattern taking longer, but I seem to be flying through it. Changes at the one wavy stitch have still been made, but I made different choices than last time. Making this has made me want to design another shawl.
Maybe I will get one of these patterns I keep making testing and out to the public...maybe.
As I was looking for the perfect border for the shawl I have in my head I found a few other things that are pretty awesome.
This super awesome/adorable dragon is to die for. I love it and want to snuggle it.
The design page by Lucy Hague is just filled with such pretty things.
This Grape Vine Shawl also caught my eye. There is a link to the pattern right on the page.
The bottom most picture on this blog post caught my eye. I was hoping it would give some insight on how to use a straight edging and turn a corner with it. From what I can tell there is no link to the pattern. It is really fancy looking though.
I thought I had more to say....but I can't remember it now. So here is another link to a Back to School Style Blazer Recon by ThreadBanger that I really want to try.
