Happy Friday!!!

Finally feeling better. Going off to the post office to mail some long overdue packages. If you've been waiting for stuff from me you can start standing by the mailbox next week. lol.
Forrest Canopy Shawl is coming along. I started off on size 8 needles, frogged and now I'm reknitting on size 6 needles. I had a knit picks order come in with some longer cables and more options tips so I moved the shawl to 47" cables and I LOVE IT. The colors aren't correct in the picture.
They had some lovely baby alpaca lace weight yarn on clearance in this beautiful moss. 4 skeins found their way into my shopping cart.
Mr Potatohead has a mouth so he's done. D2 decided on a smile with a nice toothy grin.
And this is project #2.

I'm so glad you are doing better now. You certainly have been keeping busy though, sick or not. Now that I know was SOTSII means, it makes more sense, and it is coming along great. It might not look as wonderful as it will after being blocked, but it is obviously very lovely. Whatever you have planned for that moss colored yarn is guarranteed to be beautiful. Just looking at the yarn had me drooling! haha

Take care. :)
