What do you mean I'm done already?

I am done! And I am gorgeous! Just look at me!


Perfection amoung the roses

Yes, those flowers are pretty. No I don't know if they used "Miracle Grow" on them. Yes they smelled as good as they looked. No I don't know if they were all roses, or a mixture of roses and another flower. No I'm not going to ask someone.

STOP LOOKING AT THE FREAKIN' FLOWERS AND PAY ATTENTION TO ME!

Isn't it a lovely picture? It was hard work lying just right among the roses. I was injured in the process.

Oops

I swear I am surrounded by incompetence. Then they insisted that I must appear artfully draped around the dog because the "public demanded it".

Oh the humanity

And they swore all the other shawls are doing it. I don't care if all the other shawls are staying out until dawn snorting coke with Lindsey Lohan and having threesomes with Paris Hilton in an effort to increase their visibility. That doesn't make it a good idea. *sniff* So undignified. Not to mention I want to know who these freaks are who want to see a dog wearing lace. Talk about people who need to lay off the drugs.

Then they dangled me over a railing to take this shot of my shadow.

Cool artistic shot

I don't care how "cool" and "artistic" "she" might think it is, that was a pain in my stitches. Balancing like that just wore me out.

When she finally released me I needed a drink.

what a lush

And a nap.

Shhhhhh!

Despite my partner I turned out beautifully. Just admire my stitch detail.

Center Square
Edging

Soon I shall leave all this behind and go to live where I truly belong. I hear it is quiet and peaceful there, with a woman of true dignity and beauty. I can hardly wait!

And if anyone was wondering I was made with 2 skiens of Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud on size 4 Addi Turbos, and I am as wonderfully soft as I look.

Gorgeous! And such hardships she had to face after being done, truly amazing.

Cherice said...

She really is a patient shawl isn't she. She is gorgeous.

Thank you for your kind comment. My dad has been gone 8.5 years. Sometimes it feels like forever and sometimes it feels like yesterday. I love that picture of him with his goose ;0)
