Warning.....picture heavy

First up presents:
1: License Renewal --$74 ( mandatory present to myself)













2: Presents from daughter: She knows her mother all too well.














I can't seem to get gauge, but we'll keep going or die trying.

3: Why is it that black cats are always attracted to white wool?













Really he's no help.




























He really is cute, but a pain in the A%&*!

4: Mystery Stole 3 blocked and ready to wear.
















































I wasn't really sure about this pattern once I got to the wing part. But now that it's done I think I love the wing part the most.

Pattern: Mystery Stole 3: Swan Lake

Yarn: Jagger Spun 50% merino, 50% silk

Needles: Addi Lace needles 3.5mm
















It's so very light and airy and it just makes me want to knit more shawls. Maybe this one or this one.
Knitting: PRICELESS!

Let me guess. You have to renew your registration on your birthday too? That sucks, doesn't it? It's like, "Don't give me gifts, just money, so I can pay for my registration". Try that with 4 vehicles. Sure puts a damper on my husbands birthday. I do love it that your daughter knows you so well.

Okat so the one thing I don't have to get for my birthday is that pesky car renewal. There are benefits of not driving LOL Just think......I can buy yarn with my $74!!! LOL

Love the stole. You did a great job!!
