Oh my goodness.. I'm FINALLY done with this shawl! I wanted to wear it to my DAR meeting yesterday but made a pattern mistake on the 3rd to the last row and had to take it ALL out and do it over. Then I made a mistake on the next row and had to take out from the middle back. Then I started the last row and found a KNOT about a foot into it and decided to take it out and tie off at the edge instead. Then I got the last row done and can you believe there was another factory knot 2 inches from the end? GRRRR. I'm starting to lose my love of this yarn due to factory knots. ::deep breath:: Anyway. I'm done.Even with all the trials and tribulations, I know I'm going to love this shawl. I wear it like a scarf, and also over my shoulders when it's just a bit chilly. The pattern is Ruby, it's a bit frustrating of a pattern, but I do love the results, especially the ruffly, lacy edging. You can get the pattern here: CLICK HERE
The yarn is Deborah Norville's Serenity Garden - color is "SEA".
Do you like the colors?
It kind of looks like a butterfly in the garden!
I am going to wear it this evening - it's Beth's birthday!We are getting lots of eggs now.. so we had to boil up some and make egg salad. I just love all the different colors!
I thought I'd show you where the dollhouse is for now.. in our bedroom in the bay window. It's fun to have it there.
The Hostas are coming up.. I love them so much.
And the Bleeding Heart is starting to bloom!
My big white Azalea is starting to open, I planted a white Lilac next to it, for a "white garden".
The white Lilac is just beginning to open.. I will have 3 colors of lilac soon - they make great bouquets!
Oregon Grape flowers.. or Mahonia as it's know everywhere but Oregon.. :-)
And the red Azalea is almost all open!
The red leaf Japanese Maple is just starting to leaf out.And I just had to share my 2 granddaughter's Easter photos.. Paige is 4 and Jenna is 8.
One of them is a ham.. can you guess which one?
