The Blob

Apparently, circular shawls look even more like blobs than regular shawls. I can't even begin to show you how pretty this will be. I'm going up to a longer cord soon, so maybe I can get a better shot of it.

But don't you think this deep eggplant, which is surprisingly accurate considering that it is cloudy, alpaca silk shawl will just look gorgeous with this dress in a dark silver-grey for a company holiday party? I've got less than three weeks to make the dress and the shawl and to find shoes. I realize that I am completely insane.

Nah, you can it! Plan to sleep any? We're all right here cheering you on. I started my first lace project as a christmas present and thought it might take an extra year, but I've managed to do 10 of 16 repeats!

Wow. that's insane. But what a gorgeous blob! And it will totally go with the dress. Is that the Victorian lace today hexagon shawl?
