Shawl Update

Just a quick update. I'd lost my (photo) card reader, so I haven't posted for a while! It doesn't matter though, I've mostly been working on the edging of the shawl. I have not pinned it out, so you can't see the points on the edging at all, but still one can get an idea of what it is going to look like.

You can see that at least one member of the family likes it. I am 11/16 of the way around and racing to get it done in time for Stitches Midwest at the end of the month. (I'm also really not looking forward to dressing it- There are hundreds of points on that edging and every single one will need a pin! I may have to do it in sections!

Oh and what the heck is this? I was digging in my garden and I unearthed this: about 2 inches by one inch and scary because it squirmed!

I'm guessing maybe it is a Cicada pupa because of the green, but the internet seems to suggest it's a moth. This one's a gypsy moth. So maybe mine's a luna moth. I couldn't find anything quite like it on the net.

So what would you do with something like that? Me, I buried it again. I didn't know what else to do with it.
