Today was one of the hottest days of the summer, but I could resist getting my 100% wool Swallowtail out to take some photos in natural light. My friend Amy (who Grace calls Mimi) came over, so she took some photos of me and shawl. Sorry Facebook friends -- you've already seen these.
Here she is blocking:This is the wing span. It's pretty big. Actually, I could have gotten away with the smaller size (this is the version with 19 repeats of the budding lace pattern), but I guess it'll be extra cozy in the fall/winter.
I think it looks nice worn like this. But not today....
Now to decide on my next project! Well, I'm still working slowly but steadily on the vintage cardigan, but I'm not in a big hurry. As long as it's done for the fall, I'll be happy. I'm thinking about doing a quick project for Grace. A little short sleeved shrug for when it gets chilly in the air conditioning. I'll decide soon.
