Meet Morisot

Reposted from Pointe Shoes Punk Rock And Purl:

I'm not sure what I'm doing right. Oh yeah! Staying off the computer and knitting ;-)
I finished up my Morisot Sweater this weekend:

I love it and there are more photos of it here KarinB on my Ravelry profile.
I also managed to block another shawl. I did. I know! My Père Lachaise Shawl, the 2013 Tour de France project designed by my friend Natalie Servant, is finally wearable.
I wouldn't normally pair a variegated yarn with a lace pattern but there was so much stocking stitch in this design, I thought I'd use up a little bit of stash.

I also made a huge pot of spaghetti sauce and cooked up a ton of gluten-free fettucine to make my lunches for the week, as well as cheese omelettes for my breakfast. That and an evening out with a friend Saturday night to a local pub to see two really talented and entertaining bands made for one very good weekend. This in spite of a cold that kept trying to spoil my fun. Ha! Take THAT (swallows more Advil Cold & Sinus) evil cold germs.
I'll spare you pictures of the food - that's what Instagram is for!

Addewid Shawl Finished

Here she is off the blocking mat and ready to face the winter; my Addewid Shawl. Worked in Ella Rae Merino lace in black with S/L ruby AB beads. I love it!
