Yo. Bison.

I got me some Buffalo Gold from far, far away!... Australia to be exact, from my friend Mandie. It's another post altogether, one I can't do justice to at 1:30am on Saturday morning.

So.. Introducing my bison version of the Heartland Lace Shawl, which I am knitting specifically to enter into the Calgary Stampede this summer. It's going well so far. I've already frogged 1/2 of chart 2 because I saw a missing y/o. So, all's well, right?

And we'll say goodbye for now, to:

Fiddlehead mittens (I so love you, mittens, but you have to wait for a little while); they are all silky, alpaca'ish goodness. Soft like you would not believe.

And, Fugly Mo, who i really have fallen in some kind of sick love with. Looks like a fuzzy, moldy stingray, huh?

I am so serious about the Heartland that alas, even SHE WHO SHALL REMAIN NAMELESS is in brief hybernation (a small dark picture for your confusion). Ah... knitting. She's a harsh mistress at times.

Clearly I need to go to bed. I'm getting punchy.

OH.. Hela should have been ready today. I'm so going to that seamstress tomorrow to grab my sweater back.

Yay! I'm so thrilled that the Buff has arrived - it sure took it's time getting there.
Happy Knitting on the Heartland xoxo

Hey, everything looks great! It is hard to put aside projects that are going well to knit for a deadline, I know. I am doing that now too.
I bet the buff is soft! Good luck in the show!
