Shawl Photos!

Here they are! Finally got around to taking some photos of my "shawl". This is the Confidence pattern from Lost City Knits, the pattern is free on their website. 
  This is more of a shawlette than full shawl. Its a good first pattern to get you into reading charts and easy lace work. I used sock yarn and think I may knit another one for a gift! 

There are some row changes so things don't get to boring. 

Here you can see some of the "lace"

Shawl Done!

I finally finished my Confidence shawl! All I need to do is block it and weave the ends in. I can't believe that I knit a "lacework" shawl!!!

Safety Warnings

 I just bought a new glue gun and it came with an instruction booklet. This seems quite silly because....its a glue gun. Other than put glue stick in, plug in and don't touch the hot end, what instructions do you need???

Here are some of the warnings/ preventative maintenance tips..

in capital letters: Do not pull glue stick from back of glue gun

Not to be used to replace structural fasteners when heavy loads are involved

Wear long sleeves, long pants, hear resistant gloves and safety goggles

For indoor use only, do not use outdoors or in wet or damp locations. Never immerse glue gun in water or other liquid

Do not carry the tool by the cord

Obviously, someone did all of these things to warrant including these safety measures.....sheesh!

Worst Flu EVER

Seriously...this past week had to be my worst bout with the flu ever. Not only the flu, but strep throat on top of that. It started out fine and I got some meds from my doctor and then it went downhill fast.
  A week later and 5 pounds lighter I am finally getting over this thing. I will be getting a flu shot and encourage everyone to do the same!!!
