Happy Easter and an FO

 Happy Easter to all who celebrate! We are having a low-key Easter: we'll do a spring dinner (duck, spinach, pretzel rolls and cake) and here is our Easter basket:

I finished 100 Acre Wood and really liked it. It probably took about five hours to do the picot bind off yet I persevered. I don't have blocking wires out here so I did my best with blocking. It sat outside for a few hours and then I put it in the sauna. 

Yesterday was a bit of a tough day, as we are still mourning Jessie cat. We gathered with six of our neighbors for a bonfire last evening and had lots of laughs, so that was good. We're so fortunate to have great neighbors that we enjoy spending time with. 

Have a great Sunday!

Your shawl is gorgeous. I love those long crescent shawls. They are so wearable!
I'm glad you have good neighbors to help you through these times.

Good neighbors are a blessing! Your shawl is lovely - the colors in it are so spring-like!

What a lovely shawl! I find picot edging to be oh-so-tedious but also oh-so-worth-it. :-)
Good neighbors are good to have; so glad you can find comfort together.

That shawl is just so amazing . I love the finish.

That's a long cast off. Im usually so impatient at that point. Good Job Kim.

I love your Easter basket!

I put jelly beans in a jar. that's it.

We had a sad little Easter feeling alone and all that. But today we get our second shots and my mood is already much better. Im planning resting and knitting for the rest of the day. Cant wait for my appoinment
