WIP Wednesday - Knitted Shawl and Christmas Fairy

 My shawl is getting too big to photograph on my table...I am going to have to photograph it next week on my bed.
But at least it is growing, I should be starting on my next ball soon.  I am thinking of picking up the edge and adding some sort of ruffle or lace. I'm not sure what to do, maybe you guys could give me your opinion...Ruffle or Lace?
Here is a close up of the lace pattern, you really wont see it until I block it. It looks like popcorn stitches right now.
I have started on my next Christmas ornament...a snow fairy. I hope to have it done by Friday so I can post the directions to share with everyone.
My Son read this book "The War With Grandpa" in two days.  I could hear in laughing down the hall as he read at night.  I cant help myself, when I hear someone giggle I want to find out I can giggle too.  But he just said, your gonna have to read it. So Its sitting on my night stand.

What is everyone reading?   Is anyone else getting started on Christmas like me?

Don't forget to stop by over the weekend and link up with me on Saturday and Sunday Sharing.  You can share anything you create, food, gardening, wood working, photography.....
As long is its G rated.

Your shawl is gorgeous. I never learned to knit--mom tried, I just didn't have the talent.

I think I will add that book to my library list for the winter. I never seem to have time to read in the summer, but winter? Lots and lots of time.
Have a good weekend, Carrie!

I say ruffle for the shawl. I love the snow fairy. It's knit isn't it? Darn! One of these days I'm going to have to learn so I can make cuties like these little guys!
