A finished shawlette.
Knock, knock - anyone there? Whew.
What happened to Christmas. It was coming hard and fast and now it's been gone and done for DAYS. Well, almost done. We'll head over the mountains and spend New Year's Day with my side of the family. I'm still feverishly working on my sister's embroidered pockets apron and my brother-in-law's Jayne Hat. Just the earflaps and pompom are left on the Jayne Hat and it's looking good. I'm mostly finished with the embroidery on the apron and I am hoping the already-cut pieces will come together quickly tomorrow morning. It's Christmas break and I'm going to set an alarm for tomorrow. An alarm! For shame.
I do have a finish to show - a little shawlette for my mother-in-law for Christmas. I was thrilled with the shawl pin I found to go along with it and I just love the colors of the yarn. The pictures are dark and don't do the piece justice but it was drizzly out (when is it not?) and I just couldn't get the light to work for me. Don't you think it's pretty on my hall tree? I could have just kept it as a furniture ornament!
