Meet the butlers. This is two of my B-day presents.
My Michael made them for me. One for his suit coat, one for my shawl (the problem is that I have 20? shawls). I really wanted one to be able to take pictures of my shawls for this blog. I have to stain them to match our dark mahogany bedroom suite. Don't they look handsome together?
I, also, got 2 bottles of my favorite lotion (Cherry Blossom) from Bath and Body Works and a prayer book called, "The Valley of Vision" a collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions. My father-in-law gave me "mad money"! My son bought me Guitar Fingerstyle cd.
This was also the weekend that I had my book signing for "I Can't Believe I'm Lace Knitting" at the CALS Knit-In. See Photos here.
This is Autumn's Glory (the triangular version) made in Malabrigo lace that I hand painted in "Kay" colors.
This is Autumn's Glory made in Margo Jones Trenna (the half hexagon version).This is Simply Autumn made in Jojoland sock weight.
Knitting Progress--I finished the Jojoland shawl, as you can see. It did block beautifully! Must get more of this yarn! I am back to working on Arkansas Diamonds. Not as into the Jaggerspun Zephyr as the Trenna. I got used to that silk sheen!
