Flashing the Project Stash, and an Eep

I decided not to post a pic of shawl progress yet because those of you who do not work with yarn will think it is a big misshapen mess. *grin* Later I will pin it out on the bed so it will assume some sort of shape and will take a pic of it that way.

I *will* show you a picture of most of the yarns that were sent to me. More novelty fibers that you will ever see outside of a craft store..LOL
Knitting with these is slower going, but is making a most interesting shawl.

The fibers:

For those of who are not aware of what the Project is: A member of an online community called the Roundtable has been through a very rough time both physically and emotionally, including a stay in an out-of-state ICU. Wanting to do something for her, many rounders sent me fibers which I am turning into a Prayer and Good Thoughts shawl for her.
Being the anal, OCD person that I am, I had to go and make it complicated. *grin*
The center back is a log cabin pattern which involved much picking up of stitches and waste yarn. I am working vertical stripes out from both edges now - will add sections of horizontal stripes after that, then horizontal stripes the full length of the top and bottom.


And a big **Eep** from me....

Billy came home this morning, gave me a hug, and asked if I would like to see a movie and eat out.

Huh?

Oh! Duh! *mental smacking of forehead*

I had forgotten it was our anniversary. Yes, 26 years of marriage with no end in sight.;-)

Whatever we do will better than our Silver last year. We spent IT painting a room in my parent's new home and going to the wake of a friend lost to cancer.

Dinner and a movie sounds lovely.

So, will the movie be Johnny Depp and the Chocolate Factory? *grin*

Happy Anniversary!

Can't wait to see what semblance of order you make out of all those yarns...

I envy you all those yarns and do dads! I have been working on a baby blanket (wonder why?). Being a Nana may not end up being the worst thing that has ever happened to me!
