Mardi gras



I know it's the wrong time of year for Mardi Gras. But I just got my own personal version. Colinette Jitterbug in the Mardi Gras colorway. Just like Mardi Gras you never quite know what's going to happen. Socks? Scarf? Table art? I just like the way it looks.

I finished the Swan Lake stole last night. No photos yet because I don't have room to block it right now. All my living room furniture is stacked in the area where I would normally block because the a/c guy is due later today. Anyway, the knitting part is done. I'm pleased that I finished on schedule and I enjoyed the process. Not so sure about the finished product.

So on to the next shawl, or rather, one of the others that are already in the works.

Gasp! You finished the swan lake stole aka ms3? Woo hoo! Unfortunately, mine is hibernating until I decide whether I really want a symmetrical table runner or not. Congrats!

Love that Mardi Gras colorway! I have enough of the mohair in that color to make a sort of cocoon-y jacket--except, of course, the mohair takes up the dye a little differently so the colors don't look quite the same. Hmm, I might have to get that out in time to start when it begins to cool off....

Love the yarn, what are your plans for it? Hope your AC gets fixed fast. I am in texas and even a day without air is to much.

Mardi Gras is always so special and so much fun. Since I always give a big Mardi Gras Party, I am always looking for that 'special' Mardi Gras party invitations. This year I not only found one place, but three great places to buy Mardi Gras Party Invitations that can be personalized, http://www.cardsshoppe.com/productlist.asp?catid=39 http://www.holiday-invitations.com/Mardi-Gras-Invitations-Cards/browse-26.htm and http://www.invitations-shoppe.com/Invitations_Cards/Mardi_Gras_Invitations_Cards-5-1.htm I added all three sites to my favorites and ordered from http://www.invitations-shoppe.com and was very pleased. I got lots of compliments, and was so happy. It made the holidays extra special!
