Computer Says "No!"

Well, my computer died for the final time last week. Right before the WomenFest Street Fair in which I had a booth for my other business.

Unfortunately, the backup drive I had also died at the same time so all of my patterns and my pictures are gone.

On the upside, I finished the Checkerboard Shawl. It needs a blocking and it's ready for Etsy.

Checkerboard Mesh Shawl

Here is a pic of my latest project, the Checkerboard Mesh Shawl. I am using Universal Yarn's Moods in the purple/black colorway. The stitch is from one of the Barbara G. Walker books. It's not a great pic as I just snapped it on the couch, but it does give you an idea of what it will look like. It goes fast and is a very easy pattern. When I get it done, the pattern will be available in my Etsy store.

Also, I have in mind the perfect pattern for the Tilli Tomas Beaded Lace colorway made exclusively for Knit Wits of Key West. it's a very pretty light green with tiny green sequins. 100% silk, of course.
