Well now it looks like this (click for bigger…a LOT bigger):

Flower Basket Shawl (IK Fall ’04), started March 22nd, 2007, finished April 3rd, 2007
Yarn: My own handspun (merino/tencel blend bought at VT S&W 2006 color: Autumn)
Needles: Size 7 Knitpicks Options
Dimensions: 65 1/2″ x 32″
Pattern Notes: I did 10 repeats of the Lower Flower Basket instead of 7 so it’s a tad bigger and used fingering weight instead of doubled laceweight.

Would I knit it again? Perhaps, if I had the right yarn. This was a quick knit – even in the middle of tax season I managed it in what, two weeks?

In driving news, my Jeep lived through it’s first and second excursion into the unsupervised teenage driving universe – at least I think it did…I’ll be checking for dents as soon as it stops raining snowing (wtf with the snowing?) ;o) I’ve also learned that my black-on-black with a little black to break up the black Jeep is considered pretty ‘sick’ at the high school…I ask you, does this now propel me into ‘cool mom’ status? ;o)

Dobby would also like me to tell you all a great big thanks for all your happy thoughts and advice :o) (I just hope she remembers some of the advice…)
