Here's what I've been working on the last few days. I haven't spent a lot of time on it because I've had work to do during the day part of the time, but it is the only thing I've worked on.
This is the Bernat shawl pattern that I linked to a couple of days ago. It's slower-going with this thin yarn than it would be with worsted, but I think it'll be worth it when I'm finished. I'm pretty sure I'm not doing the decreases correctly at each end, but it looks okay. As long as I'm consistently doing it wrong, it should come out okay! I think once I get the border on it, you won't be able to tell anyway (I hope). I do need to figure out what the correct way to do it is though. I was just too far into it when I decided what I was doing was wrong.

Did I say I hadn't worked on anything else? Well, I did make this flower on Sunday if that counts. I made it with baby yarn and sewed the button to the middle. I need some prettier buttons.
We got some thunderstorms yesterday evening, and it was wonderful. I really enjoyed hearing the rain and thunder. We ended up getting just over a half an inch according to our rain gauge. It's nice to get a nice rain like that for the lawn after 17 days of straight 100+ temps. It looks like it could bust out storming again at any minute this morning, but so far it's just clouds.
Okay, I've gotta get back to work. Hope you're having a good week.
