Thats a Wrap, I mean Clap!

A quick wrap of the weekend (yes that pun was intended, I have been watching Buffy after all!).
* Had braces tightened, back on soft food diet. I am over it.
* Finished Season 5 of Buffy.
* Finished 5 repeats of the body of the Clap. About to begin the decreases.
* Started watching season 1 of Angel.
* Helped friend choose some patterns for baby items, for her to make not me!
* Spent some quality time with this beautiful skein.

I was given 3 of these babies for my birthday last year. I was initially going to make a full sized clap(otis) with them. Then I was thinking a shawl. Now I am not sure. If anyone has a suggestion, feel free to let me know. It is Cherry Tree Hill DK Silk Merino blend, in Peacock colourway (approx 850m).

So the effort to fight procrastination is going well so far. As far as I can figure it is about perserverance. Lucky I am stubborn, thats all I can say!

If you feel like giving lace knitting a try (and please excuse me if you're an experienced lace knitter and I'm doing the old egg sucking thing) - The Forest Canopy Shawl is a really nice easy pattern, that would look divine in your Peacock wool! The pattern costs a little, but not much :)

Yuck to the braces - hope you're off the baby food soon!

You wear braces Shaz???I had no idea. Yucky. Just drink more. Stick to a liquid diet. ;-)

You are conquering all sorts! Well done!

Luckily the braces are only on the bottom!!
Jejune, you are a mind reader, that is the shawl that I have in mind. Shawl 1 Clap 0 (so far!!)

You're already doing a clap, I vote shawl or socks. I got no pattern advice though.

Urk, I hated having my braces tightened - 4 years of hell! But it is worth it, totally. I started my first lace shawl yesterday - it is very exciting - so I recommend lace of some sort!

Braces commiserations. I had braces when I was in High school, and my whole face used to hrt. But my teeth are straight so it was really worth it.
Happy Buffy/Angel marathon!!! Hmmmm, Spike!!! Doyle!!!
