Yes! It is finished. I love how this one turned out. And if you are in the mood for some brainless knitting, this is the perfect project. It is super simple and just perfect while watching your favorite TV show or movie or whatever. I knitted it while watching the 3 seasons of True Blood 🙂 I washed and blocked it last night and asked my friend Lilja to model it for me today so I shot some pictures of her wearing it in the sun. Yes, the sun! It has been soooooo cold, but today it finally feels like summer. Anyway, here are some shots.
Pattern: Stripe Study Shawl by Veera Välimäki
Yarn: Cascade Yarns Alpaca Lace
Today we celebrated Sumarrós’s 12 year old birthday. Her birthday is on Tuesday. I can not believe that my first born is already 12. Where did the time go and why didn’t anybody warn me? Seriously! We had a good day with our family and friends and tomorrow the ones that did not make it today are coming over for some cakes and coffee. You can see a bunch of photos on my flickr acccount.
And. Here is a photo that was taken last weekend of the Lobster Summer celebration. This is a part of my Womens Society, outside Kaffibarinn. It was a great day and everything was perfect. The food, the friends, the decorations. You can also see more photos from that day on my flickr account along with more snaps from other celebrations and daily life as of late 🙂
