Actual Knitting Content - Leaf Lace Shawl Edition

Remember the Leaf Lace shawl I restarted back in July?

(Yeah, I know you're probably thinking, "Wait, she knits? When did this start?)

Leaf Lace Shawl - ripped and restarted

I finally started working on it again the first weekend in November. Here's my progress from before Thanksgiving:

Growing, but oh so slowly!

The last crazy night

Yes, it's posted late - please pretend the date on this reads '12-11-07'. I made the mistake of sitting down last night and promptly fell asleep in the chair without posting as I'd intended.

Hey, Annie, I ate a latke just for you (or possibly ::cough, cough:: three).

Latkes + full-fat sour cream = perhaps an extra run this week

We had a minor issue in estimating how many potatoes would be required. This is post-latke production:

The results of asking one's offspring to 'grate some potatoes'
while one completes the scheduled evening exercise ritual.

Apparently my children thought I would be rounding up a few 20 or so extra people for dinner while I was out...

And the winners are...

Numbers ready for the drawing

Winner #1
Cindy from Snid Knits.

Winner #2
Mrs. G. from Derfwad Manor

Picking numbers was so much fun that I decided to have a bonus round selection and a third number was pulled from the basket o’paper slips.

Winner #3
Mysti from A Pagan’s Desire of Simplicity
(Mysti, I don’t have your email address can you drop me a line at Denise AT YinAndYarn DOT com?)

This was fun! Thanks so much for all the great comments.

I have to say I didn’t realize I’d gotten so many comments until today. It seems Blogger failed to forward a number of comments to my email like it is supposed to. So apologies if you haven’t heard from me. I was out of town all of last week for work-related training and I’m still catching up on things here back at Casa del Chaos.
