I finished one of the projects I started in honor of Dewey, and now I'm working on another.
First up, I finished the shawl I was making for my mom. Here's the completed product, modeled by my lovely roommate Tiff:
I really liked the pattern on this one, because it was so unusual. Mom's birthday is March 15th, and this is one of her gifts from me. She asked for a shawl after I made her a scarf for Christmas, so I think she'll like it. If I have the time, I'm going to try to make a pin or broach to go with it.
And for my next project: Did anyone else watching the Coraline movie fall absolutely in love with that little octopus/kitty/squid toy in her "other" bedroom?
