Go!!!

I finally was ready to cast on. In the process of thinking the all thing through, I came up with a title for the pattern:
Cockle-Shale scarf.
It is very appropriate as it is a combination of Cockleshell and Old Shale.
The first half is finished and waiting for it's second half to be grafted on.

All in all I am pretty pleased with the results so far, I can hardly wait to block it, that will be the final test... Stay tuned.

On the home front today was the annual charity fashion show benefiting our local preschool. My Swallowtail squared shawl was the "pièce de résistence" (as far as I was concerned, no offence to other designers) being the last one in the show, the veil for the wedding dress. Dear Allie wore it with gusto and some poise, I think she looked great.


And so happy...

A great fund raiser for the kiddies, strawberry shortcake and tea, fun for all.
