FO and Flowers

Let us not speak of the endless Election dramas.

Today I saw these and had to buy them they are just delightful very oldfashioned white roses with a burgandy red trim. They are cheering up the dining room perfectly.

I have had this yarn (Colored Jules Wool on the Web) for quite a few years. Potentially almost as long as the classic Clapotis pattern has been around. 4 skeins has made a gorgeous large worsted weight shawl in blue with purple through it. Blocking today

I have put the bright yellow sock aside for the time being and have commenced (and restarted) the Gossamer Garden Stole using my handspun. Lace on all rows. Yayyyy.

heh heh, lace on all rows, you masochist! but doing it in lovely handspun will help I'm sure!

Love the roses - and a perfect way to deal with election despair.

Hmmm - clapotis - looks good. I really think I'm going to have to make one. If I leave it any longer it will be retro!
