Running out of time!

I have a lot of work to do to get my taxes done and got zero done today.  I put the kitchen back together and finished the laundry -- phew!  Spring cleaning done in the Spring!  It was 81ºF today -- beautiful day.

I went to the yarn shop to knit with the ladies this afternoon and finished my Sneaky Sheep Swap item.  No clues, no pictures -- you'll have to wait until Tuesday night, once I've given it away.

Here are some pictures of the Moss Agate Shawl that I finished up in New Jersey:

I used a skein each of Colinette Point 5 and Rowan Kid Silk Haze.  I used size 17 needles so it was a bit clumsy and slower than you'd think.  It's going in my inventory stash for the Fall shows.

As promised, here are a couple of items I purchased last Saturday at the Hook-In:
A hooked sheep pin made by Kris Miller of Spruce Ridge Studios

And a maple bowl made by the husband of my hooking friend Connie.  It's a really small bowl, maybe 4" across but it's adorable, just like the sheep pin!

And with that, I'm off to do some receipt scanning in preparation of Schedule C for my taxes.  It's a busy week ahead with both the knitting and quilting guilds meeting, so there won't be a lot of spare time for taxes.  I sure do wish I'd made more headway today.  But....taxes aren't due until a week from tomorrow so I should be able to get them filed on time, right???

I'm a new follower to your blog! Your sheep is cute, and your shawl is amazing!! I hope you'll come check me out over at Sassafras and Winterberry. I'm a rug hooker and spinner--and I like to knit too.

Hi Courtney -- Glad you found me! I've added your blog to my roll. I'll be doing the ABCs in the next day or so -- great idea!
