OMG life is sooo busy that I can't believe that I found a few minutes to make this small post.

I tried to get Tony to post for me, but apparently he's busy too -- who knew?

Speaking of Tony, this is what he's working on:

It is the BMP pattern from

I have finished a big chunk of my first Sockapalooza sock. It's Embossed Leaves in Carol Green (Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock).

As promised, here are some Swallowtail Pics.

Tony models:

The Stats:

Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark found in Interweave Knits Fall 2006.

Started 3-28-07 ripped and restarted 4-07-07

Yarn: Alpaca Cloud in Tidepool
Needles: Knitpicks Options US 4s 24"cable.

Bindoff: 5-20-07

Blocked: by Marianne 5-23-07

No modifications were needed, this is a perfect pattern all by itself.

I'll make another someday even though I don't know what I'm going to do with it.

My next lace project is the Spring Things Shawl.

I'll try to post a little sooner next time.

There you are! I thought you guys had gone missing or something. I've been checking the milk cartons for your pictures. Beautiful Swallowtail, and Tony was a good sport to model it for us. The embossed leaves are very pretty and the BMPs look great.
