I finally got outside when it wasn't raining to take some pictures of my 'Christmas in January' shawl, which was the result of the 'mystery knit-along' I participated in:


I love it and I'll definitely keep it for myself -- it'll look great with my black coat! I also finished the Noble Cowl ... the flowers were compliments of Esther. :-)
I'm looking out the window at gorgeous blue sky and sunshine, so today will definitely be a day for a walk somewhere -- maybe along a beach somewhere to look for herring! I haven't made it back to the doctor yet... apparently she decided to take this week off and cancelled all her appointments -- I was not impressed. I think I'll survive, though.... :-)

LOVE the red shawl....did you knit it for a friend who is having a birthday in September?? LOL...or she could borrow it IF she ever did wear a shawl!!!!
The carnations look great with your last project!! great colours together.. your pictures are always so well done. I agree with Grace about the TWO 'word verification'..have to click it a few times before I find one that I can actually make out.
SUNSHINE in Victoria at the moment..but it's slowly disappearing..heavy rains expected for today. Have started a baby pinwheel sweater for a special someone in Saskatoon!
