Another 1 bites the dust

Annis is done!

1 full skein plus about 15/20 yards of a second skein of Socks the Rock lightweight.

I had a little help while taking the pictures.

I still haven't finished clue 3 of the mystery shawl.  I hope to get through at least clue 5 over the weekend.  This maybe a possibility because the new tsock hasn't come yet.

Squirm and I went to the West Shore Farmer's Market today and then headed over to Borders.  We may have bought some books. 

I think I need more bookshelves.  Oh, wait -- Borders will be selling their bookshelves eventually!

Fiber Update

My hat for the Mad Hatter Swap is done!  S requested ears, and I think that I fulfilled that request.  My mother kindly modeled it for me.  She is now annoyed because I never made her a hat with ears.  She has never asked for one.  She says that she didn't know that was an option.  She tried to keep this one. 

I went to the Souper Bowl sale at the Yarn Garden with Mortal.  She got a sweater and a shawl.  I got a shawl and a pair of socks.  

I borrowed a mannequin to get a better pic of the medallion shawl.  Mortal came up with a better name.  It will be called "Girl's Best Friend", since diamonds are a girl's best friend.  I like that song. 

I have 2 1/3 clues done on the mystery shawl.  Clues 4 & 5 are out. 

I started an Annis using STR.  I orginally started with Noro lace, but I didn't like the fabric.

I won a box from the FIX drawing.
