Here is Sarah's Orchid Thief that I just finished. I used one skein of tosh merino light in cove. It was fun to knit. The pattern kept me interested. Obviously! I finished this in about 6 days.The pattern can be purchased on Ravelry...
My phone just honked with a surprise. Sarah is home from work and here are pictures of her wearing the shawl.
Three petals bloom from the centre top edge, their points organically growing into the three spines of yarn over increases. This unusual increase pattern creates the perfect shape for staying in place around your shoulders. The petals along the edge are grouped into threes, echoing the centre and forming deep scallops.
Here is my little project. I started an Inspira Cowl in Freia Fingering.
Our friend Phil is in town from England so we're heading out to the Keg for dinner. It could be a late evening (Phil always has amazing stories of his travels to share) so I need to finish my post before heading home.

We're home from dinner. I didn't get the post done before we went. A small problem with some parcels that I was shipping out. I had to stay after closing so that they could be picked up. I didn't want to wait until tomorrow. There are knitters out there who need their yarn.
