Tilt Sweater, etc

Sorry I haven't posted in quite a while.
I have been busy knitting the Tilt sweater from I am getting close to being done. I have also been working on the mystery stole.
The second tote exchange has just started and sock wars will be starting soon. This with a long list of other knitting projects to do as well. So much knitting, so little time.
We have also started homeschooling early this year. We had finished all our trips and vacations and the children were getting bored (translates to fighting). We started 2 weeks ago and are slowly getting into a routine.
Eldest daughter starts grade 10 at the public school in Sept. She is majoring in welding with a second in carpentry. We only had a little argument with the school about transitioning from homeschool to public school. Nothing more than expected.
I Will post photos when my daughter brings her digital camera back on Monday, or until I can figure out how to get photos from our new cell phone onto the computer. Whichever comes first. LOL
Blessings all

Personality Quiz

What can I say, I liked Sesame Street.
Here is my personality quiz result:

You are ZOE. You are a lover. Romance, flowers, and wine are all you need to enjoy yourself. You are serious about all commitments. A family person. You call your Mom every Sunday, and never forget a Birthday. Don't let your passion for romance get confused with the real thing.

Finished the Antracite shawl from the book "Ponchos and Wraps a knitters dozen". I like how some of the colours pooled and other places it didn't. You can really see the different directions the wool is going. Hope my SP8 likes it, because it is for her. It was a fun, easy, in the car knit. Posted by Picasa

Here is a close up of the Anthracite shawl. You can really see where the yarn changes direction. Posted by Picasa

Here is a close up of the Mystery shawl. Thanks Renee for another great shawl. Posted by Picasa

Mystery shawl 4 complete

I have finished the Mystery shawl 4. It is a pi shawl knit with Malabrigo black. I had to change colour on hte edging because I was running out of black. I used Paris nights for the edging. I didn't get the name of the pattern until I was partway finished. The original shawl by Renee is called Desert sunrise and is a bautiful gold colour. I guess I picked the wrong colour for the name. I decided to rename my shawl keeping with the same theme. Mine will be called "Solar Eclipse over the Desert". It was a fun knit and my first Pi shawl. Thanks Renee.
