In Which Laminaria Gets Wrapped Up

So these photos have been up on flickr for... two weeks. Oops. I shall keep the words in check on this one, because really, I feel that visuals are far more exciting.


Pattern: Laminaria - Larger size, but smaller needles
Yarn: Fleece Artist Suri Blue - Under 2 skeins
Needles: 3.5mm Addi Lace
Start: April 29, 2008
End: June 11, 2008
For: Ms Happy
Modifications: Knit one extra repeat of Blossom Chart
Verdict: Yes. I kind of love it. And thankfully, I think Ms Happy does too. (And she blogged about it!)

Thank you all for the comments on the last post, both about the shawl and my... truck incident. I am almost back to normal, have a few remaining scrapes and my arm is still sore sometimes, but last night... I knit for the first time in two weeks! Yes! So what have I been doing for two weeks? I will show you next time. It involves stash.

In which our hero has a cameo

Hallo folks and folkses.
Today is the thirteenth day of the sixth month of the year (ooh, and it's a Friday, too, spoooooky), which can only mean one thing., and that is that it is the (second) blogiversary of this here blog.

I had wanted to maybe hold a big giveaway/contest, but alas, I have nothing to give. Or perhaps I could have unveiled some shiny new blog layout, but no new layout is to be found.
Instead, I think a few 'thank yous' are in order.
Let me say first and foremost, thank you for reading and commenting and generally being all kinds of awesome (yes, you). Keep up the awesome, too.
Um, actually, that was sort of the big major one, but I've got on slightly smaller thanks as well.
Thanks to the wonderful Miss Happy for giving me an excuse to knit this. If I could make like a hobbit and provide gifts for you all on anniversaries (yes, I know a blogiversary isn't a birthday, but it's close enough), I would most gladly do so. For now, however, I must simply leave you with photos and good wishes.

Be well, everyone! I shall attempt to make a return to semi-regular posting in due time.
Oh, and Mademoiselle Happy, We had better see some shawl action shots, providing it is in fact to your liking (because people, the thing was entirely knit to my whim, she has just been the unwitting bystander in all this).

Last minute edit!
I am so glad I typed that all last night because after taking tonnes of photos, I went and got winged by a truck door on my home from lunch. I am bruised and battered and the radiologist says my arm is not broken (though from the outside, it looks like it could have been fractured), and I am in general, quite ok, if tender. Also, my right wrist is very unhappy, so I will have to leave uploading photos until at least tomorrow. But I can give you these two pictures for now, with a promise of more to come.
