would it still be wednesday if I didn't post knitting?

snagged the master blocker into a couple more blocked shawls.  I think he is only 9 behind now, but we are improving. 

The top one is Boo Knits---new beginnings, it was the first KAL of the year but I did not do it then, our KAL for the beginning of July is the Boo Moon, it had to be BLUE, so I used 5 different colors of Knit Picks Palette to make this, and ICE BLUE triangle beads on the lace edge

The giraffe is for Maisie in her nursery colors, so quick and simple   Like Ria, I also got her the book Giraffes can't Dance to go with it.

The bottom shawl is Kirsten Kapurs Mystery Shawl, knit in an unlabeled rust colored sock yarn and finished in Opal Sock, A truly lovely knit  I did change the final border and i am happy with it.   

Both shawls are huge! On the needles now ---Noro Circular Shawl, The Chasing Rainbows Shawl and a scrap mitered square blanket.   With the beauty of a well air conditioned apartment knitting has not had to be put on hold.
