Pleased!

Good Saturday Morning Folks! No rest for the wicked today. Oldest has 3 softball games today and 3 other mothers and I are feeding ALL the teams. The out-of-towners are coming from about 3 hours away.

So, moving quickly on. I've finished my grey shawl. I love it. It's cozy and warm. I can imagine wrapping myself in it while enjoying my knitting and coffee on the couch in front of the tv on chilly winter evenings :) I don't know why these photos look so washed out and if I was at all a bit tech-y I would've photo-shopped them. The color is more accurate here. I must quickly add, that even though this was a really simple lace pattern, I've unknit and reknit this darn thing so many times I really should have two to show for my effort (argh!) and the fact that it is done pleases me to no end :)

Have you noticed my list of stash-busting knitty finishes in the sidebar? That also pleases me to no end :)

Thanks for stopping by my neck of the woods! Sending you all a little Colorado Sunshine!!!

That does look like a great shawl for cool days and cool TV watching nights. Those lacy patterns can require some concentration to keep the frogs away. Congrats on the finish!
