Yes, Two Posts in One Afternoon!

I finished the knitting part of Oma's shawl (it's her birthday present, so don't anyone tell her, okay?). It was just the dishcloth pattern expanded and knitted onto size 15 needles, so it was a bit plain. I decided to dress it up with some exotic beads I found at Joann's. I couldn't seem to get a clear picture of the beads, even with Kerissa's excellent advice, so you'll just have to imagine a lovely red and orange curry color.

Peter is helping me string the beads onto the shawl, and is a very good helper.

Just look at that concentration!

I love the picture of Petesy trying to string the beads! :) Very sweet. Can't wait to see you. Going to bed now...I just finished the blog on Caleb's bday party. It was a fun, exhausting time.

Oh, I love the word "Extravaganza"! Hope the recital is a success! :)

Love, Angie
