another shawl?

Since I finished the FBS, I couldn't help but think about the Wing-of-the-Moth Shawl, so I asked my DH to buy the pattern for me (he has a paypal account). So he did the dutiful thing and got it for me. Lucky for me, while I was at the Commu-knitty night last evening, Ellen showed me lovely mohair lace from her personal stash. It was perfect! Lorna's Laces Heaven in a discontinued colorway that was just the thing for the wing-of-the-moth shawl. I wound it into a ball and cast on the shawl right there and then. I'll have photos later of the progress. There's even a race going on! Check this out.

By the way, check out the pretty picture of my FBS modeled by lovely Purl Diva.

I'm still plugging away on mystery shawl 3. I'm on the final chart/clue. I hope to be done by the end of this month. It'll be sock season soon, so I need to finish some socks I've started last month. So much to knit, so little time.

Welcome to blog land!! Its a heavenly place to be. I find much comfort coming and reading what all my knitterly friends are up to!

I love the FBS ... I am trying mine at the moment and the pattern keeps screwing up in my knitting ... i think its time for some lifelines. I am envious of people like you who can do lace so easily!!

And what is the mystery shawl?

Hi Mary,
Found your blog via the Purl Diva's blog. Love your shawl, it's beautiful! Also, welcome to blogging -- I'm leaving your first comment!
I've had a blogger account since 2004, but just recently decided to blog about my knitting life too. We're both newbies at this -- hope I see more of your beautiful projects in the future.
