Happy Birthday, Suzi!

OK, I lied a little. Even with a super cute puppy at home, I was able to get a bit of crafting done. My step-mom's birthday is today, and since I seem to be addicted to knitting lace, I wanted to make her a special shawl for her special day. I never seem to give myself enough time to make gifts, so this was a quick knit for me...about two weeks. I had to adapt the Eliina pattern to make up some time, but also save on yarn. I certainly didn't have as much as I thought I'd need. But now that I'm done and see the adapted size, I'm glad I didn't make it as big as it was supposed to be. It would've been a blanket!

And for those who are only coming for a puppy fix . . . =)

No post of yours is complete without the puppy fix. Ahhhh MUCH better.

The shawl is nice too. Honest.

Sara, the yarn is another skein of the KnitPicks lace yarn that I got in my sampler pack.

And I can already see that this is quickly becoming "Dex's Ruffled Feathers." =)
