YOP #17 and 18

It's been a little over a week since I last posted...I've been busy. Lots to post, just didn't take the time to sit down and do let's start with a YOP update....

Really, I have only finished one new thing...a quick snakey bookmark...
It was to fulfill a Nerd Wars challenge....Nerd Wars has ended another tournament....our team played, but real life happened and we didn't post big this time's tournament is during the summer, so I'll be around much more.....

I also cast on for a Sooper Seekrit project for the Nerd Girls Swap.....I have a Stargate swap that I need to figure out and start a project for...AND I signed up for an apocalypse swap..just was assigned partner today...lots of swapping going on....

Also started my first MKAL today!  It's the Blood and Fire Daenerys inspired shawl from Jimmy Beans's really my first true lace project...I had to tink back twice because of missed YO's, but that is it...I'm loving the yarn...but hoping that the next clues don't take me all day (I did take breaks, but pretty much that's what I did today....s.l.o.w k.n.i.t.t.e.r)
The color is a bit darker than what was captured....

I have been working on my Colored Wings and am on the fifth wedge (no picture update)...I may be knitting this really loose, not sure how many wedges I'll get...thinking of ordering another skein...

I did not finish my dissertation, but got pretty far...

Front and back (missing belt that connects the top with the skirt part)
Beginning of sleeve one

Hopefully I'll post some more of my very busy week......

You have been busy!! When I did my first lace shawl I lost count of the number of times I had to go back!!

Lace is fun, and it feels like you've done a magic trick after you've blocked it, but be warned .... the rows just get longer and longer and longer, I guess that's why I seldom knit shawls:) Pretty yarn!
