Light at the end of the tunnel

Quite hard to tell what this is supposed to be, isn't it?

This is the Cloud Gray shawl - a triangular shawl but you sure can't tell that by the picture. I can hardly tell it myself and I'm knitting it!

I'm working the edging, in the round, on all three sides. Rounds are rather long, but the edging repeats are actually soothing to knit and every other round is plain knit.

I started this with close to a full ball of yarn and had visions of lace scarves and things I might could knit with the leftover yarn. Well this edge, on this many stitches, is a yarn eater and I'm not sure now I'll have enough. But we shall see. No need to get the cart before horse just yet.

It might be nice to have a bit of instant gratification, and these quick loopy felt flowers might be fun. I think they'd be nice to use instead of bows on packages and gift bags. Of course, I'd have to get UP to find the felt. Maybe I'll just keep knitting around and around.

Whew! Another hot, hot day. I hope you've had a good weekend.
