My ode to turquoise

Completo! Finalmente tengo una manton encajada. Pero no es mio, es para mi mama. Creo que ella es una chica suerte, pero tengo demasiado humilidad a decirlo.

So, as I'm sure you gathered from the above, the large leaf and trellis is done. And not a day too soon, as Mother's Day is fast approaching. I must admit that, despite my comment above, I'm immoderately pleased with myself on this one. It's freaking gorgeous and I want to keep it. But Mom deserves a special treat, so it will wing its way to her soon, along with care instructions and a lifetime blocking guarantee. LOL. I've been a very busy chica for the past couple of weeks, which is why you haven't heard a peep from me. Between finishing this, getting ready for class, attending conferences, working on papers, writing....and, oh yes, the daily life of shopping, cooking, laundry and even *gasp* a bit of cleaning I haven't had time to blog. But since I think only about 1 person reads this (she knows who she is and I adore her for it), I'm sure there hasn't been a planet-wide groan of misery due to my blogging delinquency. So, without further ado, enjoy pics of the completed shawl, taken at my favorite place. I will return to my normal, irregularly scheduled blogging whenever I can.
