I started this shawl on April 4th. The next day I also started a vest that I am designing in Berroco Sock yarn and a few days after that started the Victorian Lace Poncho. Yes, I had startitus in April. As it usually happens I got down to business on the shawl and left the others in time out. I’m wired that way. I don’t think it would have taken me almost two months to complete, if I had concentrated on it more. But, then I also got a new laptop and I was shopping for a BOP (Body of Proof) handbag….I’ve been a busy girl with my shopping fingers since my knee surgery. Thankfully, knee is getting better so my credit card will not be burned to a cinder. Here’s a few pics of the Vernal Equinox. And the amount of yarn I had left out of 1600 yards! (Thank you, Nikki) I kept thinking I was going to run out and think I mentioned that I was going to several times.
I mentioned the BOP bag. If you watch Body of Proof, you have noticed her bags. Prada, of course. Mine isn’t, but I like it and I like the sale price I paid too! I got it at Wilson’s Leather. It even has a little laptop sleeve for the bag but it is definitely a handbag. I’m not using the sleeve because I’ve carrying my little netbook computer in it along with my purse contents, a small knitting project and my reader and of course my phone. I won’t carry all of it if I’m going on a shopping trip..but it’s great to be able to when I want to!
