A True Olympic Finish

I finished my projects for the Olympics right on time, I just didn't get a chance to post them. Sometimes life gets in the way!
Here's my finished shawlette (small shawl). It's knit from The Plucky Knitter's 50% silk, 50% merino, in a worsted weight yarn. It's lovely! I love the drape of the knitted fabric.

And lastly, my Pretty Thing cowl. It's also knit in The Plucky Knitter's yarn. It's her 4-ply cashmere yarn in the colorway, Wild Violets. I basically knit this object in 2 days, and it was a stretch to get it done, but I love it! The yarn is so soft.

For those on Ravelry, you can view my project information there. I'm trying to be better about posting it to that site, if for no other reason than to keep a journal of sorts for myself.
I'm off to give the dog some much needed loving. He's sitting on my lap as I post this entry. He got his first hair cut this week. We can finally see his eyes! I hope that you're all having a good week! I'm SO looking forward to this weekend, when I'm SO not working!

Oh, and we've got DSL now, and wait for iMac!

These are both gorgeous. I bet that scarf dopes drape fabulously in that yarn. Nice work!
