...I haven't cast on for the Dragon Shawl... yet.
Actually, I left the yarn in skeins, which is helping. I don't have a winder, so I have to take it to Mom's... so it starting the project actually takes forethought.
I even finished the first front of the cardi - it's blocking now. I've started the right front, but I've only got the moss stitch border done. Last night, I bought some buttons for it on Etsy.
I'm not sure if they will be the right size, but if not, they are so cool I can find something else to use them for (there are two)
I was looking for nice celtic buttons. I saw some on someone else's blog - I can't remember who. They looked like carved wood or bone and they were celtic knot work. If anyone knows anywhere online I can find something like that, please let me know.
Yesterday Dave and I spent the afternoon at my Grandparents. My Grandpa's internet was too slow, and he was having trouble playing online bridge... five hours later Dave had the problem fixed and I had about 3.5 inches done on the second pink sock (no pics yet)
We also got sent home with a Butternut squash fresh from the garden. It's in the oven cooking right now, along with some nice roast chicken.
We stopped up at Mom's today and I finally got some pictures of the Fan Shawl.I was happy with the usual pose, but Mom decided to get all artsy with the "Stick it in the tree!" shot.
I have to admit, it looks nice in the tree. I've been wearing the shawl all weekend, and with the cool nights we've been having (actually got some frost last night) it's making me crave more warm woolies.
So, while dinner is cooking I'm going to go get a few more rows done on the cardi. That is if someone will give it back:And someone else will get out of my knitting basket:
