Pictures? Here you go...

I finished blocking the Garden Party Shawl today and took it out for a photo shoot. I'll spare you the self-portait in the bathroom mirrow shot. I just draped it and hoped for the best. Here you go. I'm sure you like it. It's amazing how the color can change because of inside flash and outside light (in the shade I must add).




Don't blame me, I was on a roll and wanted to take advantage of the batteries being full.

Here is a little peek at the KP project. I know, a little fuzzy, but that could just as well be the yarn. Do you see it's lace weight? Actually it's KP Alpace Cloud in Tidepool. Now what could she make from that.... You'll see, eventually.


Gotta go, gotta catch up on knitting...

Your shawl looks fantastic! Lovely color and I like the design a lot. Very well done, and in record time too, despite being sick and all.
I don't like knitting with lace weight, like Alpaca Cloud, and still I have some in my stash. It's for times, when I don't have any other yarn in the house, and have to knit slowly to get as much knitting out of this yarn as possible. :o) Probably doesn't make sense, but to me it does. :o)

I already put a comment up in Ravelry about your shawl, but I have to say again that it turned out beautiful. I'm hoping to get the rest of my photos uploaded to my blog for a post sometime today.

Thanks again Miss Tease for the KP photo ... hmm... methinks a shawl?

Are you feeling better?

Stunning shawl! You have to be proud of yourself with that one! Can't wait to see your KP project in the catalog and tell my family...I know her! ;)

That is MAGNIFICENT!

Actually, I can't find the right words to describe how indescribably exquisite your shawl really is. That was the best I could come up with. But it doesn't come close to doing it justice.
