They're even more beautiful now, as they're starting to open up more.
We went out to dinner without the children (we took them to an hourly daycare place that they love and never want to leave) and then went to Barnes & Noble, browsed through some books and had a cup of coffee. We watched the unveiling of the Buried Car on TV from the restaurant, and it was sad to see it in such poor condition.
In Shetland Tea Shawl news, I'm on repeat number nine of 36 of the border. I'm quite pleased with it, but it isn't very photogenic at this point. I'm trying to get the border done and the shawl off the needles so that I can use them for the Mystery Stole 3. I haven't settled on a yarn color yet, although I'm leaning toward a very pale grey. I've got plenty of KnitPicks' Bare lace-weight yarn, so I'll use that. Once the yarn is dyed I'll pick up some beads. This will be the first time I'll actually knit along with a mystery project so it should be fun.
I started a Baby Surprise Jacket (by Elizabeth Zimmermann) a month or so ago, and with the short spurts of working on it, it's getting close to being finished. I'm just using Red Heart acrylic yarn since I have it in my stash. Hopefully I'll take a picture and post it soon.
That's all the news for now, although I have some catch-up things I need to post soon.
