Golden Finishing – Winner!

Winner of the absurd hat is Anne! (I went to and entered the number of comments, and VIOLA! It came back with 1.)

I love this shawl, a lot. It’s done and lovely. I hope to get better pictures at some point, but again, if I waited to get wonderful pictures, nothing would ever be posted.


There was another shawl that had been languishing for awhile because. I finally finished it last week when the I got The Dreaded Stomach Bug of 2014. It’s a Hogwarts Express in Sundara’s Fingering Merino Cashmere. The color is Raspberry Ripple.


Here’s a close up of the owls:



This bit of lovely is for my wonderful Maid of Honor.

And now I’m working on another bit of wonderful for Yertle. I love this blue so much.


This is a color from 2012, The Great Pacific, in Sport Silky Cashmere. It’s so delicious. Like knitting with kitten bellies. Only, not as horrible as that images in my head. It’s very delightfully soft and wonderful. And that blue! It’s accurate in the photo, it’s that deep and rich. The beads are fun too.

Now for a giveaway, I had an itch to turn this yarn into a hat. And now I have. It’s a ridiculous hat. Completely absurd. If you would like this hat, leave a comment. Anyone who leaves a comment on this post will get entered in the drawing for the hat. In the comments tell me if you’d like me to add a tassel. I’ll do the drawing next Saturday.
