Hello!

Not to shock anyone, or anything…but look, a post by the Scrabblequeen!

After many months of not much going on in the knitting dept, I have an FO I’d like to share with you. Yeah, I know…it IS pretty amazing. 🙂

Meet the “not quite a Holden” shawl, which I named Bamboozled on Ravelry.

Knit from 100% Bamboo yarn. I think the drape is superb. The color is….Sand. I hate that it changes color depending on the light source. Turns absolutely green under flouescent lighting….it must be seen outdoors in natural light to look its best.

 

In other news…my eldest son was married last week…we flew out to Joplin with the youngest to attend.

They had two very interesting (and well-done) cakes….

And this one, which will only make sense to some of you.

I don’t know if this post signals a return to more regulare blogging or not…time will tell. But seriously, I’ve missed some of you tremendously.
