Am still chugging away on the Oiseau de Cendre. I have opera tickets for next week, and so, since I am so close to finished with this stole, I clearly have to have it done in time to wear it to the opera. This should not be a problem. I'm about 3/4 done. Yay!
I'd forgotten how much I enjoy knitting lace. I kind of want to make my mother a silk shawl for her birthday, but I did make her a wrap last year, and I can't decide if it would be too much the same thing. Last year's wrap was wool, though, and I thought something she could wear in spring and summer would be nice. There will be a wedding coming up in September--not mine, don't worry!--that she could wear it to and be all spiffy.
