Silver Seas

 I've been working on this one for a while. It's been my fall back project. It's mostly cotton and has just the perfect summer weight to keep the A/C chill off your shoulders. I love it! But it's not to keep. I really do not need a different shawl for each day of the month, no matter how much I like them. Soooo, it's 

 $40 and it's all yours. Any takers?
I still need to weave in the ends and block it. Blocking shouldn't change it much at all - I'm going to do a very light block - but it will "clean" it up some. I'll post more pictures when I finish all those little detail...

Happy retirement Mom!

 A shawl for my Mama.

It took way longer than it should have to finish. Can you see why?

I was about 10 yards short. Just a little annoying to buy a whole nother skein for 10 yards!!

 But it's finished and delivered, finally.


 ....is not one of my strengths. Therefore I have just spent an hour going thru yarn in an attempt to organize and only ended up with a bigger mess...

So I'm stopping to work on this. It's not much yet, but it will be a baby blanket. It's a commission, not at all a yarn I would have chosen,  but it's super soft and fluffy. Now that I'm getting used to using it I think I like it.

I'm still here...

I may be crazy. The summer camp at the daycare where I work started this week. Always a crazy week and it means a new schedule for me. AND I stared working out this week. I'm exhausted. It seemed like a good idea - start it all at once and have the momentum going all summer... I hope I don't run out of steam in the middle of week two instead....

Regardless, I'll post something fun next week, or maybe this weekend, I promise!
