The end of the semester is here, and I am scrambling to get assignments in. At this point, turning them in on time is a major accomplishment, and it sadly is one I'm not always achieving. (Julie was right in a big way about that organization thing.) The knitting isn't getting done so much, except random rows here and there. I have a hat for my sister's newborn that's giving me grief in the decreases (somehow I thought I could go without a pattern for a plain hat. Seems I was mistaken on that), I have a wee knitted animal that just needs stuffing, and I have my standard parade of UFOs that are requesting attention. Oh, and the nearly a dozen emails I'm behind on answering. Can't forget those.

I am here for another reason, though. I'm overdue in blogging about this:

This is the Wing of the Swan shawl knit for me by the matchless Knitter Bunny.

Isn't it gorgeous? Last Saturday night Mr. Cygknit and I attended a play co-starring Terry's husband. To be appropriately attired, I chose this ensemble:

Wing of the Swan Shawl

Fabulous, no? She has more pictures here (blog) and here (Ravelry). I won't be able to do justice to her description of the design of this amazing shawl. I can tell you that the lace elements reflect swan feathers (me) dragon scales (for my not-enough co-blogging here), water, and more. Kelli, please explain more in the comments? Mr. C is rushing me out the door for Thanksgiving at the in-laws and I don't have the words to describe this well enough. All I can say is thank you for adding such beauty to my day.

How beautiful! Lucky you :)

I have to admit to getting a kick out of seeing Beaker watching over the proceedings...

Swan Wings for Cynthia
Dragon Scales for Lisa
Rosebuds for beauty
Rippling Water edging for tranquility

That's the short version. :)
