Yes it's warmer, with rain now and again and that's all I'm going to say about weather. I'm mighty sick thinking about it so I can only imagine my few followers are sick of reading about it.

This shawl is going to have red fringe, my first fringe, assuming I can master the technique. It supposedly takes a long time and eats yarn. The red yarn is also Caron Simply Soft, the gray is Bernat Satin. I couple more rows of gray and I'll be able to get to that fringe. It will be interesting.
