WHEN SYSTEMS FAIL

Applications failed to load this morning.  Some coworkers indulged in computer games.  Not I -
Progress is slow on the Wing of the Moth shawl, but steady.  This malabrigo lace is so fine and weightless that it feels like a whisper beneath the needles.  This will be my third shawl and it occurs to me that I haven't introduced the other two on this blog - probably because they are in constant use!


I finished my hat made with Rowan Cocoon.  One of the students promised to model it later today, but here's a little close up until she arrives:
(it's sitting on my lap)  The Cocoon has just the right amount of mohair to provide a thick and impossibly warm knit.  I get over heated just THINKING about wearing it!  Luckily, it is to be a gift.

Are you going to edge Wing of the Moth in another color or keep it solid?

"It feels like a whisper beneath the needles" What a great line.

OMGoodness! I'm so glad you found ME, because now I've found YOU. Look at all we have in common. I open up the blog and see a sunflower (my favorite flower of gratitude) and then I see flame colors and quilts and dogs. Yay! I have subscribed to your posts through my Google Reader.

I remember that about the malabrigo when I knit my shawl. I think it looks fabulous. Love that orange.
