All Done!

Shawlly! My very own first lace shawl, The Sagittaria Shawl, is done!
I know I should hurry and put her on my other blog, but another busy day is coming up. I have some other fo's that need to go there, too. I'm just going to have to make time to post my details there!

I have to make some time to do a proper pic of me modeling this shawl soon! Here we have the Little Diva being a "modeler", showing off Shawlly for me. She went a little wild with the tattoos. I know she applied more than 20! Hehe, at least they wash off. I only have 4!

I am most definitely wearing Shawlly to a wedding this fall, I think I'll be wearing her a whole lot more, though! I am in love with shawls! I was looking for another lace one to knit, as soon as I had her off the needles! I have lots of socks I want to knit, too, though. Time! I need more of it!

Today, we are hopefully going to finish the patio, and next weekend I hear there is a Fiber Fest in Michigan! I really want to go. Look who will be there with her awesome shawl, that she designed! We'll have to talk about it again Carrie, and maybe make some plans!!

I am so sorry for not answering emails, and properly thanking everyone for the wonderful comments. I keep hoping to get to it, but with knitting like a crazy person, reading like another crazy person, and kids ~ Well, you know.... Soon, hopefully, soon!

Shawly is amazing! Congratulations on finishing her!! I'm sure you will get lots of wear from her. (If you can snatch her away from the modeling Diva :-)) I just went to a fiber fair in Illinois yesterday. It was Wonderful!! So much yummy yarn and more. Good thing I set a spending limit.....

Looks awesome! Start on another one soon so those of us KAL laggers won't feel quite so bad. :)

Hi--I'm also doing a shawl for Carrie's KAL...albeit a smaller, simpler one since this is my first true lace project. But I think your shawl is simply amazing...I love the pattern and you did a beautiful job on it! Congrats on being done!

Just gorgeous Ar, and look at lil' Ar vamping it up for the camera ;-)

I love shawls too, I was generously gifted some lace weight variegated yarn that I hope to turn in to something lacy and fabulous.

I think the fiber fest is in Allegan?
