As you can see it is finished and it is "big" just like my pal had wanted. I hope she likes it. I had such fun making it. I also made a book mark to go along with the book I put in with the goodies and also a Sterling Silver and Turquiose Chip and Tiger eye bracelet. I also make some stitch markers. then I got a nice chicken soup book, some tea and a nice knitting mug star fish plushies t hang from shelves and a little spring clock.
Now I will be starting the other project. I joined the Mystery Shawl3 knit along. My Zephyr yarn I odrered is 50% lace and 50% wool in a nice Mahogany color and I have chosen Red rainbow beads that look just awesome with it! It is my first real "big" lace project and I am excited about starting it. I will so my swatch first and see how it looks. We chose our own yarn though the designer gives us some ideas for colors and we chose our own needles. The smallest circ. needles I have is a size 5, but I think I will try my size 2 straight needles they are 14" long and I think I will be able to fit 99 stitches on them. Well I need to get to working that swatch. But first will check on hubby he had his final oral surgery done today and he is feeling kind of crappy. Have a great weekend all!
