as i read along, i laughed and LAUGHED. and on my last laugh, i realized, crap! this is the END of the story!!! (not the end of the book, as she has many knitting/crochet patterns included).
so, the book is in the package as well, and i sincerely hope mom doesn't bust a gut reading because she just had gallbladder surgery yesterday. whoops!
in knitting news, i've temporarily lost my sock knitting mojo. i am, right now, hooked on shawls. maybe i'm hooked on shawls because the last one i knitted wasn't for me, and i feel cheated.
regardless, this is for ME. it's knitpick's palette yarn in colorway conch, and the pattern is evelyn clark's 'rose ribbons shawl' from her book, knitted triangles.
the green stitch marker will stay 'til i'm finished, but for right now, it marks where i transitioned from ball 1 to ball 2.
to me, this colorway is very miami 'south beach'. regardless, i don't have a shawl this color, and thus, i NEED one in a color i wouldn't normally wear.
