Here are two pictures of my completed Civil War Shawl. They were taken at night so they are a little dark, but isn't it GORGEOUS!!! It has taken a while to knit but I LOVE IT!!! It was worth every stitch. The dog hiding beside me is Chelsea. My Scotty dog who is afraid of her own shadow.
I plan to take it on my Quilting Retreat weekend with me. I will be wearing my shawl, even if it is 100 degrees!!! It needs to be shown off!!!
Got 5 blocks of my Dear Jane quilt done yesterday. Also, prepped about 15 of the applique blocks to work on over the retreat weekend. I am not going to lug a machine with me, just hand stuff.
Chat later

This is absolutely gorgeous. You should be so proud. How many skeins of Gloss did it wind up taking you?
