Yay! It's done! I didn't make it in time for Mother's Day after all, but the shawl is now done. I stayed up late last night to finish it. I'm going to block it and then take a photo of it. It's HUGE! I'm hoping that my mom doesn't feel like it's too big for her. *ponders how to take a photo of such a large piece* I have a bit of the Kidsilk left that I don't know what to do with now. Maybe I'll make some lacy bookmarks or something.

So, I've been thinking about what kind of gift to give my friend Minako when I go to see her in Japan. She's going to take me and Miranda around Kyoto, so I want to give her something good, but I also don't have a lot of time to finish them in. I was thinking of making her a few knit items. I'm thinking of making her that 'Branching Out' scarf from Knitty. Can you think of something else that I could make to go with it? I'll probably look through the 'Last Minute Knitted Gifts' book to see if somethng jumps out at me. Maybe those gift bags or something? I!
