Just for Jon

Yes Jon, I'm finally giving in. Here is a pic of the mystery shawl I've been working on.

I joined a Yahoo group called appropriately MysteryShawlAlong. Most of the members have moved on to the second shawl in another group, but I thought I should start out with the first one. The shawl is a bit more open than it looks in the pic cause well I smushed it on the scanner since my camera is a pos. I'm using Alpaca Ware Superfine Alpaca Yarn in petroleum blue. It is a fingering yarn and very soft. I'm working the shawl on size 8s cause I want it to be nice and open. In the pic you can see the stitch markers that I made up. I'm thinking I might try using monofiliment to string the beads next time. Maybe I made the markers too long but they sometimes get in the way. Then again I'm used to just using a jumpring. lol

Ok, got lots of stuff to do. I have to have my happy ass in bed early tonight. I have to be to work at 6:45am. bleck Don't forget to check on eBay. I've got like 26 crochet and cross stitch books up under the name froddo123. Someone buy my junk!!!! lol Actually most are nice patterns.
