I’m making good progress on my Joker shawl:

I ought to have it done in a day or two. Boxy is still waiting in the wings. My co-KALer is making some nice progress on hers, so I’ll pick mine up again when she reaches the same point I am at in mine. And I have plenty of other projects to knit along the way!

Loki sez:

    Thank you so much!! What a great Mother’s Day gift!! My sweet granddaughter is visiting right now from across the country, she’s 7 months old and these patterns will be great to do for her. Four generations together today!
    Mother’s Day hugs to all! –Christel

    Your shawl is beautiful, wonderful colors. I wish I could give Loki a hug, what a belly.

  3. Hugs to Loki! What a content, secure kitty he is. Ours don’t sleep on their backs, but maybe they don’t trust each other not to pounce? Beautiful shawl and pretty spring/summer colors. Have a great week Wendy! Bess

    You, Wendy, astonish me in how fast you knit your beautiful often complicated projects. Do you have secrets you can share? The shawl is beautiful-I’m hoping for one in my future 😉
    Waiting to see how your Boxy comes together… Enjoy your day! Hugs to Loki!

    Oh, Loki, Thanks for the hugs. M

  8. I made fingerless gloves very close in shades: madeline tosh variegated “Carbon” color, I think, and a chartreuse / safety green: really cool colors. Lots of compliments.

    Nice work & pretty colors on your shawl!
