Whew. Just finished the shawl.

I will post a full picture when I get a digital camera later this week.

Now I can go back to Sally's favorite sweater, my Griffyndor GOF scarf and a pair of socks for a friend.

Will it be done in time?

Today... I finally decided I needed to finish a beaded crochet shawl in time for my trip to Chicago. You never know if it will be cool inside the theater or not, so I like to take a shawl with me just in case.

I am working on a black lace weight mohair with dark purple beads (they look black in the picture). Overall this will be 60" long and about 18" wide. The red one is the picture from the book.

The big question... will it be done in time? Time will only tell....

Concert time....

I just found out this week I will be able to attend a concert for one of my favorite performers Michael Crawford at the end of May. Have spent the last 2 days purchasing my ticket, making hotel plans with friends and looking for flights.

Then... drat (LOL) I will have to go shopping for a outfit as this is the opening gala for the newly refurbished LaSalle Bank Theater.. so definitely time to get out the snazzy clothes.

I'll let everyone know how it was when I get back.
