Time to Finish

I'm so close to being finished. Two more rows and then I'm casting off.

Melanie Berg's new pattern, True Colors (purchased on Ravelry) was released today.
Let your true colors shine in this eye-catching shawl! 
Whether your style is bold, elegant, playful, or simply unique - you’ll find this asymmetrical triangle shawl to be the perfect playground for your personality. 
It knits up to a generous size, with a simple lace pattern creating a stunning scalloped effect. Eyelet stripes separate gradient color bands, which become the accent color when the scheme is reversed near the end. 
Use a Staccato Set by Lorna‘s Laces to create the gradients, or search through your stash for all those skeins of extra sock yarn you’ve been saving for a special project.
The Staccato Set from Lorna's Laces will be arriving next week. I've been told they will be here on Tuesday - Mr. UPS comes around 4:30pm.

We received a very special box from The Fibre Co. yesterday. Garments for Camp. North Row will be hanging in the store until Tuesday. The sweater is beautiful. The pattern pictures are beautiful but when you see it in person you will really want to make it. The yarn is Arranmore Light.

Skein weight: 100 g

Now it's time to finish. If I get the stitches cast off tonight then Alex might be kind enough to sew my ends in tomorrow.
