My friend Susan finished knitting this a couple of weeks ago. I guess it is a testament to how much she really likes it because she was unwilling to immediately gift it to me.....and I need one
So it looks like I may have to knit it myself. Not that I'm not capable, well we'll see, I suspect I can. I'm off right now to get the yarn, because I need a distraction from drawing beads. And a visit with my friend.
I'll let you know what yarn I get. I think I have the beady eyes covered.
I know nothing about where the pattern came from, but if you too need one, I will be finding out.
Update: Well that didn't take long...with the help of revelry and a search of owl shawl, I found this link. The pattern is 3 euros which I find totally reasonable. Ah yes, the instant gratification of the internet.
Mark will join me as we go off for a little mid day outing, lunch at the Station (the best black bean burger), a stop in Junque, to see if the matching candlestick is still there, I only bought one, we've decided we need two, and then onto the Grove for yarn. Then back to the computer and drawing beads.
Every day I learn more and am now firmly ensconced in symbol libraries, building a library of all the various bead shapes I use on a regular basis. Then I can just open the symbol library, break the link, change the color to the ones I need for the current project and then save the new symbol. That was my morning, this afternoon, I need to finish up the third project, well actually I need to start it and finishing would be good. I have that and one more for tomorrow to stay on track with the plan.
But I know if I don't take time out it won't be good for me, so a little time out is in order.
