Two projects down - two to go.

I can't believe I didn't take a completed picture - but I finally finished my Craftsy 2012 Block of the Month quilt top. The photo below is when I was laying out possible block combinations. I went on to add sashing and borders in white. Then, I picked out a light blue batik print fabric for the back and drove it over to Two Quilting Ladies to be quilted.

Let me tell you - it really took time away from my knitting! I'm looking forward to seeing it come back in August.

And on the knitting front - 

This rumpled mess is my Fledermaus-tuch - knit up in Dream in Color Starry. There really isn't a good way to photograph it and - as it is over 85 degrees today - I'll wait a bit before modeling it.

With those out of the way, I'm back working on the Benedetta by Carrie Bostick Hoge. Still on the yoke . . . still gray and impossible to photograph.

I've also been working on my other shawl - 

the Botany Shawl from TinCanKnits's Handmade in the U.K. I love all the patterns in this book and highly recommend it.  I'm sure you'll be seeing more of her patterns here in the future! I'm also playing around with starting another shawl - the Black Death Shawl? - or my long-forgotten Acer. Hmm. 
Time to enjoy the air-conditioning and knit!
