FO Busting part one

First off we have the Swallotail Shawl from the Fall 2006 IK, made in Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud
which is a dream to work with. I love knitting lace, there is something extremely satisfying and soothing about all those yarnovers and what not...however I can't really pull off the lace look myself. So when a friend of mine was thumbing through my knitting mags and said "omg I could totally see myself wearing this" I took a mental note, as her birthday was coming up. Lace is fun to knit, not so fun to block...especially since I didn't have (actually hadn't even heard of) blocking wires...all those little points were individually stretched and pinned then re-stretched and pinned. I hate blocking. But I am pleased with the end result...behold!

My Return + Sushi

I have tons of knitting backlog to post, but first...lookie here, I prepare nutritional sustenance too!


Some cloesups of the munchtacular goodness:

I mean, really, is there anything I can't do? Besides keeping my blog up to date, that is.
Lot's has been happening...since my last post there has been a move, a trip to Europe, a currently failing attempt at marathon training, and a company buyout at work.
But rest assured there has been a ton of knitting. How else do you think I made it through it all?
