What's Going Down

It's a dilemma...

Do I inundate you with all my knitting projects at the same time, or do I spread it out as blog fodder for the next week...

Well, I guess we'll start at the beginning... I think this is the beginning.
 Heavy sigh. As in, this was a labor of love. As in, I love it so much that I would wear it everyday if I didn't 1. Live in Florida and 2. Get strange looks for being overdressed in the dropoff line at Preschool. Jerks.
Please, try to keep your eyes on the shawl. I understand that my breasts are well, busty. Shawl.
The pattern is called Haruni.  It's my first foray into knitting with laceweight yarn. Wow. It was stressful. But now I feel awesome. I mean, look what I made?!!? With my own two hands!

Also, not a great picture of the shawl, but I like the way I look...you know, kinda blurry.
A big thank you to my six year old daughter who took these and the next couple of entries' pictures. Isn't she awesome!?
