Time for a change

Please bear with me while I play with my blog theme over the next few days.  I’ve chosen a theme that has a lot of customizability to give me room to make changes when the need overcomes me without making drastic changes to the appearance.

I’ve been making a few Grim Reapers.  While this Death waits on eyes, he (it?) decided to lounge in my plant. I know it’s time as a houseplant is almost over, but Death did not have to make it so obvious that the end is near. (Grim Reaper is from Creepy Cute Crochet.)

Two years ago, I started working on Amie Hirtes’ Sweet Pea Shawl (via NexStitch) for myself.  I had made one a year before that for my mother, which she loves to the point that she will never wear it because she claims it’s too beautiful. I wear it when I’m visiting because it is not supposed to spend it’s life draped over a mirror.  After finishing three rows, I put my shawl to the side to work on other projects. A few weeks ago, I pulled the unfinished shawl off of my yarn shelf to take with me as a project for my breaks during standardized testing at the middle school.  After a week of testing, I’m getting close to being finished.  I will definitely need for the mornings in Montana while we are visiting the in-laws this summer.  Here’s a little shot of my progress:
