Spring Things Shawl- DONE!
To update the rest of my busy weekend-
I went to see the Yarn Harlot talk and sign books. She's funny and sweet and listened to our stories while she had 20 people left to meet. I brought the shawl with me to tink while she talked. I begged Rebecca to show me a looser bind off while we ate ice cream after the signing. It worked. I was up until almost 1 am trying to pin this thing out on The Boy's floor, in semi darkness, while he slept. Funny, it went super easy and smooth. I thought it was perfect. Of course, I saw it the next morning and it was right-side down. lol
I got up Saturday, ran The Boy to his grammie's house, then went home and started to pretty myself. We went to the service- no air in the church. It was stifling in there. Nasty. We visited Gram between the service and reception. She was so surprised to see us dressed up. I even had on makeup (and panties- Rebecca! It was that kind of place.) Trust me, she'll get that joke, but no one else will.
We went to the reception, drank, ate, drank, ate. Went home. (Thank god for sober drivers, I swear.)
So here's what you've all been waiting for- Me in the finished Spring Things Shawl. (Can I say just one last time how much this thing kicked my ass?)
And sorry, Christine, many people complimented me all night, so you don't get it.
