Fridays Are Good

...especially when it's a day off from school. The sun is shining brightly but it's chilly. Here are a few photos - in natural light - of the Malthese Shawl, which is about 90% complete!!! So much for making inroads on the stash in 2012 - who knew this would take 4 months to complete?

Today's selection celebrates the colors in the shawl - white is the only color mentioned in Rossetti's poem not present in the garment. 
Malthese with top border folded under but not sewn yet
Even though it's steeked, you STILL can't see the triangle
Seems like an awful lot of yarn is still left -
the chartreuse is the only small ball











By Christina Rossetti
What is pink? a rose is pink

By a fountain's brink.

What is red? a poppy's red

In its barley bed.
What is blue? the sky is blue
Where the clouds float thro'.
What is white? a swan is white
Sailing in the light.
What is yellow? pears are yellow,
Rich and ripe and mellow.
What is green? the grass is green,
With small flowers between.
What is violet? clouds are violet
In the summer twilight.
What is orange? Why, an orange,

Just an orange!
