The last ten days have been crazy busy. 

Vet found lice on our horses so we have been busy treating them with weekly wormer and spray, daily grooming, and a huge spring clean up at the barn.  She said it's been a rough winter and there is an outbreak of lice in the area! 

All grooming supplies had to be cleaned as well as any tack used on the horse.  I am tried of the smell of bleach and insect spray!  But this weekend I found no lice on my horse!  Two weeks down, four more to go!

In little snippets of time, 10 minutes here, 20 mintues there, I finished the shawlette -- I don't like it.  I love the pattern, but it is too small to be of any real use.  I am thinking I will rip it out and make a cowel or smoke-ring out of it.  I enjoyed the pattern, it just isn't big enough.  I have not cut the small bit of yarn off the end, might knit from the shawlete instead of frogging it and making a new ball.

I did enjoy the pattern, but just not enough yarn -- and I think the yarn may be a little to thick for this pattern.  I have been eyeing other yarn I have on hand to make this pattern, but I am trying to get all my WIP off the sticks.....    But, alas, my first "shawl" is done!
