A few FO's

Thought I'd just share a few FO's!!







This is a shawl I did for Mary White. She's a very talented designer you can find at: http://customaryevents.blogspot.com/


This is a shawl version of her Valentine Tablecloth. Of course that's DD doing the modeling. You'll recall that I've mentioned that DD is 5 ft 10 inches, so this shawl is huge!! I did it in JaggerSpun Maine Line 2/8 and size 5 needles. I think the next time I do the full version I'll just use lace weight and 3's!! 78 inches across is a little big for me. LOL!!


The really great thing about this pattern is that Mary gives you several places that you can go straight to the bind off, so you can do just about any size you want.







This is that afghan that I was doing for a friend of mine. I ended up using about 3500 yards of Debbie Bliss yarn. I really dislike her yarns (personal opinion) they split like crazy. I guess it could be too that I like to use

needles with points that you could easily use for a murder weapon!! LOL!! The pointey (is that a word??) the better!! I'm just really glad that it's finished!! That's a California King size bed that it's spread out on!!



And (not really a FO) I won!!! I was involved in the Seasons of Lace:

I won for most yards knit!! I ended up knitting 11,855 yards in 3 months!! How, you ask...... you should see my house and the DH has been eating TV dinners!! LOL!! This is the prize I got from The Loopy Ewe:



http://www.theloopyewe.com/ I love this site!! The hardest thing about ordering from them is making up my mind!!!
Got to go!! Time to make the DH's breakfast..... trying to make up for the 3 months of neglect!!!!

The only word is 'stunning' you are one very talented lace knitter. You are also one very good friend! I bet the housework was still waiting patiently for you when you finished knitting the shawl, sigh, why doesn't it just give up and clean up without our help? ;-)
