AND, I've made really good headway with my drop stitch shawl. In the previous post you can see I've just gotten to the 5 rows of lace in the first solid yellow section. After that lace section I've done a section of garter stitch of solid yellow, garter stitch darker bland, garter stitch solid yellow....which is the half way point. Beyond that I've done a garter stitch section of light blend, followed by another solid yellow garter stitch section and am now at the end of the yellow lace section. Quite a few additional inches. Will move back to the mix sections of light and dark blends with lace and garter stitches. Then, I will add yellow I think to both ends to pull it all together.
When last I showed you this gray blend shawl it needed to have it's ends worked in. Yippee........got that done, something I put off. Here's the shawl nicely draped with a fabulous hand made shawl pin. I'm very pleased I found that, think it really finishes it off. This is a gift for a very good friend who likes gray and hinted at that when I made the pink and green for myself awhile back.
A close up of the pin with those gray stones......I really thought it was perfect.
This is my upper arm, 4 days after getting my Shingles shot. It was hot to the touch for a week, but got better each day. Muscle type soreness. My cost after insurance was $143.00.....and I still need the 2nd go round several months down the road. Even with all that said, it beats getting the shingles, so I do recommend you get yours if you haven't already.
LOL......spotted this recently in a little gift shop and it spoke to me. And with that, I'm heading to the kitchen to make Manhattan's for tonight. Hubby just called and said he's finally leaving work.
