Shawl for Her Birthday

Hello. My mom's birthday was on the 17th. I gave her the shawl today and took her out to breakfast. She loved it. I was really proud.

I can't put the picture on here (at least I do not know how), but it is on my blog if anyone cares to see it. The address is: . I watched a movie this afternoon and cranked out a dishcloth.

Now I am going to a gay pool party for a steak tonight. It sounds good.

Very nice, BanjoLee!

You have whetted my appetite for shawls again. There's a wonderful pattern in Knitting in the Nordic Tradition by Vibeke Lind where you cast on the two shorter sides of the shawl, and knit knit knit, mindlessly, decreasing every other row in the center, so it's just mindless knitting which in my book is the best thing ever.

How was that steak?


Think less, enjoy it more.
