A Date with Uncle Sam

He and I are huddling up around the kitchen table today to play a little poker.  I'm hoping I win ~ tax time ~ blech!  Decided to dress for the occasion so I'm wearing my new shawl for the first time.  Thanks everybody for knitting along ~ it's a great way to start the year, knitting alongside friends.  Here she is ~ man, it's hard getting a photo that does justice to all this work and tiny detail!
I'm really pleased with how this lace knitted up and thanks, AGAIN, to my friend Lucy for gifting me this amazing yarn!  I'll think of you every time I wear it ;)
I did check today and the pattern is still up and available for free download (at least for the moment!) so if you're inspired to take on this project, here's the link.


  1. It looks amazing! I love the two side by side photos at the end of the post, neat!

  2. thanks! we just couldn't get it all in one picture :)
