It warms my heart, when strangers are concerned by the lack of new blog posts! Thank you so much! Last week was a little hectic all around, and I just could not muster the will to write and post a new blog post. But fear not, I'm still here, I'm well, and I have lots to show!

Lets start with my latest finished object, the Cameo shawl.
handspun Cameo

It's knit with my handspun yarn, called Brad (golden brown) & Angelina (blue), which I've shown you earlier.

I had to add a few more rows of the lace part, because I wanted to use most of Brad's yarn, to get to the lighter part for the picot edge. In the end I still had to break the yarn and remove some of the golden part, to get the lightest yarn for the edge.

I love how it turned out.

I've also finished TTL Mystery Shawl Summer 2012 clue# 3:

Not much to see, but it's some leaf lace pattern. I can't wait to finish this shawl and block it, to see how it looks. I like the color very much, but it's still going to be a gift.

And I know I've shown a similar photo of Denny before, but he's been doing this sleeping on his shawl thing, or other wooly blankets a lot lately. Must be the combination of being wet a lot, and the A/C in the house.

Well, that's it for today. Must go, lots to do.

I have never much cared for Brad and Angelina until now : they look gorgeous together and I love the unusual shape of the shawl. Things are slightly hectic here too!!
I love that Denny looks ever so slightly worried. he's lucky to have so many hand knits!!

Cameo is marvelous :-)

Glad to hear your absence was life related and not something bad. Keep well.

Wow, your shawl is stunning! I love the two colors together and am kicking myself for not joining the FCK club when I had the chance... next time! This one is going in my queue.

Cameo is beautiful - looks like it's a nice size too.
The mystery shawl is coming along well - I like the colour more everytime I see it.
Denny is adorable! He looks so sweet and innocent!

Brad and Angelina, what a beautiful shawl they make together. And Denny, that look on his face, you can see those thinking wheels turning. He is precious.

Fabulous shawl ~ love the color, texture and picot edging ~ love it all :) I'm more "into" texture knits like this shawl than open lacework these, not sure why.

I'm curious what you are sooo busy with? I can't seem to get anything done these days but read ~ kisses for Denny ~ maybe he just enjoys a security blanket?

Oh wow - der Cameo ist einfach so wunder-wunder-wunderbar geworden!

Ich wuensche Dir eine erholsame Blogpause und einen tollen Sommer mit Deinen Fellnasen!

Liebe Gruesse
