the beads..the netbook..the thread
This is something new.I'm sitting at the coffee table working on my shawl and blogging at the same time. It's the first time I blog on my little netbook... Loaded my pictures onto a little thumb drive from the other computer and added them that way. . I decided to add beads to the tips of the last few rows of leaves. Nothing too drastic. I also want to work some beads into the edging. You don't know how happy I am to have made it to this point on this shawl... the last 2 rows before the lace edging. I'm on a different row repeat then the rewritten chart. So somehow I have to work it out.. the chart I'm following is one row ahead as far as where you would add a new leaf or start the edging. So I'm working the extra row and then starting the edging from the next chart and crossing my fingers that it will work.
Today was just a beautiful day in Florida.. a breezy 80 degress.. sunny. We went out to see Avatar in 3d only to find out they are no longer showing it in 3d in the theaters. So we decided to go to and eat sushi instead. Man was it good. I tried the sparkling sake which was really nice with the sushi.. it was light and lightly fruit flavored. After we stuffed ourselves we strolled around whole foods and Michael's Craft store. I bought some fashion crochet thread to crochet something light and airy for the summer to wear over tank tops. Hopefully the next time I blog I will have pictures of the shawl with the lace border at least started.
