Two, yes two, finishes!

So, I finished my grape doily at last. This picture is before I tucked in ends and colored the white bits. It is now on the washer drying and, of course, the grapes are taking a while!
And I finished the shawl and shall be mailing it out this upcoming week to it's owner. I do love how very soft the caron simply light yarn is!

And now look at this patience!!! Jack insists on saving this for me. It was given to me along with several other skeins by a dear sweet friend. It was the favorite thread of my favorite designer Elizabeth Hiddleson also. I do not get very far on such things before I be way to annoyed to continue!
 Fancy some kitty piggers?
Here she is watching some folks wrestle and capture nuisense alligators.
And just being Sylvia Joy!

Thanks for visiting. huggles and blessings.

I hope you post a picture of the colored grapes too! That doily is stunning. I too like Caron light yarn. Soft yarn is wonderful yarn! ...mostly. :)
