I've been in love with Gail (aka Nightsongs) for quite some time now, and I finally made it. I won this yarn in a Battlestar Galactica fibery game, it's dyed by Christina Marie Potter, and I love it!



I HATE blocking, I love what it does, but I hate actually doing it, so it took me almost 2 weeks to get it blocked:

I love the Cylony yarn. I had to bind off early because I ran out of yarn, so I ended up using a different red yarn to bind off. I like it, it sort of frames the piece a bit.

And my Storm Cloud Shawlette:


Yarn is Cadenza by Estelle. I was really sick last week, and I needed a simple project and this was just perfect!

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

I'd rather craft than go to work.

Beautiful! I really like the first shawl. Someday I will be brave enough to try some serious lace knitting...
