Look What My Mom Did!

I'm so proud of my Mom. This is her very first lace project:

This is the Swallowtail Shawl from Interweave Knits Fall 2006. She used KnitPicks Bare yarn and dyed it a darker ecru color.

I''m so proud! We had a few phone consultations (they live in Idaho, I live in Oklahoma) but they were few and far between. I can't wait to see it in person!


I'm excited because my parents are coming for a visit in about a week and a half. Of course that means I've got to shovel out this room, but is desperately needs it and I need a deadline to actually get it done. :-)


Yesterday was my wonderful, awesome husband's birthday, and the kids were totally mystified that he didn't want a party, or a card, or--gasp--no presents, just a cake and a nice dinner with us. The three of us sang happy birthday to him, and despite Ryan claiming he didn't know the words (he's 3), he sang just as loudly as the rest of us. It was SO cute!


I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Your mom's Swallowtail is nearly as lovely as she is! And your Spring Things Shawl is gorgeous too. Do you ever sleep?
