Basking in the sunshine

The weather lately has been perfect. High 70sF followed by cool evenings. If it stayed like this all summer, I'd be very, very happy. Yeah, I'm a weather wuss and I know it won't last like this, but a girl can dream.

The finished shawl really enjoyed the sunshine.

And yesterday after I typed for a while, I took the spinning wheel out to the back deck and listened to a book on my iPod while spinning some of the myriad of fiber that's taking over my house. I hope to do some more today when I get home from teaching my class at the shop (we're open until 5:00 today instead of 8:00 due to the holiday).

Tomorrow morning, registration for Sock Summit opens at 10:00 a.m. PT! That's also the time I have to open the shop. Hope no one needs help first thing since I'll be on the computer hoping to get registered for the things I want to attend. Actually, I pretty much want to camp out there all weekend, but that doesn't necessarily involve taking classes. :)

If you're in the U.S., hope you're enjoying a long Memorial Day weekend. Remember it's not just about picnics and a three-day weekend. Take time to thank a soldier.

I love the shawl; the geometric lines are great!

It really is gorgeous! I like the design in that it gives good arm coverage and doesn't point to all things south. ;-) The beads are also a really great finishing touch.
