Woot! Lots of finishing going on this week. Finish it up August is definitely a success so far.
First, did I even blog the cast on for this shawl? I needed a quick birthday knit for my Mom. Something substantial enough to keep her warm in the car, but quick to whip off as well.
Pattern: Dinner at the Eiffel Tower
Yarn: Hand dyed “The purple one” in Cash dk x2 skeins

my camera really hated the subtle varigation of the yarn. So that’s the best picture I could get. ah well. Mom liked it and that is all that matters.
2nd FO of the week….
Yarn: Sanguine Gryphon Eidos in (Coffin Fly) and (Chocolate Rhino) equivalents. (why can I only remember the bugga names for their colours?)

OMG I cannot relate to you how relieved it is to have this monkey off my back. I truly didn’t think I would forgive it all the trouble it caused me but once the ends were woven in… I love it.
Next post will show the other milestones I’ve hit since August started.
