Hey, Not All Lace Has Me Whipped!

I am thrilled to come here this evening and see I have comments. Now I just have to figure out how to respond to them. I think I have that problem solved for the new comments but let me just say "Thanks and welcome" to my commenters so far.

And I finished The Tenderness of Wolves this afternoon. It was a fine book right up to the end and even left me a little teary-eyed. Sometimes Unwilling Guru, I'd love to know what you think of it when you're done. Leah, I've never read Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde so I have absolutely no intelligent comment to make, I'm afraid!

And Gemma, I figured cats were sort of required for a knitting blog!

So I said I would try to put up another picture or two. It's getting late but I think I will try to put up one. This is a recently completed scarf (it's Knitpick's Candleflame stole pattern - I think that's the name) that I entered in the Maryland State Fair this year. And it won a third place ribbon in its category! Huzzah. So at least, perhaps, my lace-knitting cred is augmented a bit, after my wimping out on the periwinkle...uh...Carolina blue scarf.

The yarn is Blue Heron's mercerized cotton in the Water Hyacinth colorway.

Congratulations! You've had your state fair already? I'm jealous. Deep-fried lard is calling out to me.
