12 Shawls in 2012: June- Hanging Out by the Pool

 Here it is, on the cusp of teetering into June. I was a bit tired of working with super-fine yarn. So I made an executive decision to create June's shawl from a lovely worsted weight, Debbie Stoller's Bamboo Ewe. Made from 55% viscose and 45% wool, it's both warm and slinky, but not TOO warm to be comfortable on a summer's evening. Or morning. Or whatever.
 Last month when I was in St. Augustine, I spent one day lounging by the pool, in the shade of the palm trees. I thought, "Palm leaves....crocheted palm leaves!" After swatching several individual leaves, none of which I actually liked, I remembered this vintage piece of antique lace I had here at home, and how I once thought to myself how stunning it would be to make it in a heavier weight yarn. Stunning it is, don't you think?

Corner View- "In the Sky"

This weeks CV theme is "In the Sky"
I have seen several things in the sky, or at least outlined by the sky recently on my trip to Florida
The Bridge of Lions

 Dolphins in the sky...
 A lifeguard platform on the beach. I love the contrast of the red against the blue sky.

...a tern flying over the ocean...
 ....and the sun rising over the Atlantic on Vilano Beach.
...and finally back home, to take a picture of the "Super Moon" outside my bedroom window.

Today's CV theme is "On the Ground". What's on the ground at my house today?
Wool. It's sheep shearing time again.
