I’ve been working on a Talisman Shawl for a while now, and it looks very much like a big red blob, hence the title.
The yarn is Misti Alpaca Lace in a great red color that doesn’t exactly show up well in the blobby photos. I’m really pleased with how the shawl is turning out, but I suppose you’ll just have to take my word for it, since it’s not showing up well in photos.
In other news, I went to a “pageant” today where faculty members competed for a crown. The event was a fund raiser for St. Jude Children’s hospital, and it ended up being a lot of fun. One of the faculty members did a dead on impersonation of Frank from the Rocky Horror Picture Show for his talent portion. He had the whole thing down, right down to the accent and the (ahem!) costume. I didn’t get any photos, but from where I was sitting near the back, he was pretty much a ringer for Tim Curry. I trust that you can let your imagination do the work. He even answered the “final question” portion as Frank, rather than as himself. I doubt you need me to tell you that he was the winner of the pageant.
