A storm and a finished shawl

Tuesday we had enormous winds, bringing a storm from Canada to our normally-warm area. The cold wasn't what bothered our little Bisou, though; it was the noise from the wind rattling the shutters and banging branches against windows. She's a timid little thing, and she was just quaking in my lap — until I told her that we should probably go get her Thundershirt. That seems to have done the trick, as you can see here. ;) She relaxed so much that she had a little nap in the rocking chair next to my desk!

On a different topic altogether, I have finished a small shawl/scarf from some lovely silk yarn I picked up on a recent trip. This yarn was pre-beaded, and you may be able to see the clear beads in this photo — if you look *very* hard. LOL! It was a very simple pattern, with just yarn overs and double decreases to make the design.


  1. The shawl is really pretty. Bet it looks even better in person with the little beads in there. It's cold here too and I hear maybe even some snow for you guys. Stay warm!

  2. The shawl is beautiful, I may need the pattern for that if its not too difficult :)


I really enjoy seeing comments and read them all, so please feel free to post here.
