Well, if you've been doing what I've been doing, that is - which is making fish sticks for dinner, so I can read the new Harry Potter book. Mmm, excellent reading. No, this isn't a spoiler post, but I have to say, this lady's writing is really wonderful to read. You're in the story right away, there isn't a difficult part, or anything that doesn't move smoothly. She ties past books into the story in a way that makes me suspect she had it outlined all along... not flying by the seat of her pants, which is how I always write =) Good book, people. Well worth ignoring the laundry.
And happily, when I raised my head from the book, I got to write a post with shawl updates! Asa has been working on her Snowdrop shawl, and here's a new picture. Go Asa! Live it for me... I'm so jealous.
Liz has been working away on her Cozy shawl. I love the lacy look and drape of this shawl. It looks comforting, doesn't it? She's fretting a bit about how much longer it will take her, so go give her a holler of support, ay?
Also knitting away was Rachel, and before I could put in the picture I had, she finished her Forest Canopy Shawl! That's some wonderfully fast knitting! See the foresty colors, the way you can imagine light sparkling through dark trees, and the different nuances of color it gives? I need this image for my yoga. Very, very nice. Great work, Rachel.
Something lit a fire under Arleta (a fiber festival, perhaps?), and here's her finished shawl, also! Isn't it beautiful? I wonder if she'll let me borrow it... heehee. I get to see it in person, too, so much handling of fiber will be done. I bet it will fit me perfectly =)
