I had two ladies with mildly smaller hands than mine try them on, and they seem to fit just fine. So I'll be sending them off in the mail today.
As you can see, the yarn didn't have the bright yellows that were in the picture... or that I had thought were in the picture of the yarn itself, but the gold browns are very nice, especially close up where they're flecked with other colors. The overall effect seems warmer... and should go well, I hope. And the yarn was, indeed, a joy to work with, and I got paid plenty to buy a bit more for me. Thank you, Gretchen!!
The shawl inches along, I'm on the second needle size, but the beading goes along slowly. *laughs* I knew that with the PI shawl it would, as each section takes just as long as all the previous ones put together. I have a small hat commission, and the plate will be ready to pick up on Wednesday, so that'll be done, too.
This morning is the first morning of a week where Jet's going to be at Camp Invention, so I'll have most of the day to do things with.
