Another One Bites The Dust

But first, a bit of good news. Scarlett shed last night, so I fed her her first fuzzy this morning. I usually feed in the evening, but since we were off for MLK day, I wanted to feed her in the morning so I could more closely monitor the temps of her tank. It has been so hot lately that I turned everybody's heat off. But I knew it was supposed to get cold today, and wanted to make sure she didn't get too cold. I don't want to risk her starting to throw up again. Here she is with her tummy full of mouse:

On to other news. I finished this prayer shawl today. This one is for my friend who's mother died the week before Christmas. It was #1 on my WIP list.

I've still got to weave the end in, and I want to wash and dry it. I'll do that tomorrow, then I'll lightly block it.
The first picture I took of it is this one:
I wanted to lay it out on the floor to take the picture, since it is so big. When I looked at the photo, though, I noticed that the shawl had blended in with the carpet. So I took the one on the bed. It didn't turn out very good either, but you can see the shawl better.

With that completion, my WIP list now looks like this:

1. Prayer Shawl
2. Irish Hiking Scarf
3. Wavy Lace Shawl
4. Red Heart Strata Scarf
5. Branching Out Lace Scarf
6. Texas Longhorn Scarf
7. First Time Socks
8. Monthly dishcloths KAL--two per month
9. Socks knitted from the yarn I got for Christmas (two pair)
10. One slot left open for a screaming stash project

Oh wow, you allow yourself 10 WIPs. And save slots for new ones! That's so sensible. I guilt myself into oblivion and end up starting new stuff anyway. Your system seems better.

The prayer shawl is lovely. You're right, it shows up much better on the bed!

Sus, I wish I could claim credit for the idea, but I got it from the Stashalong I'm a member of.

Thank you for the compliment on the shawl. I just hope it brings comfort to the one it is intended for.
