An almost finish and a start

I've finished the knitting on the Lavish Lace Shawl. I've begun calling it the Dunes shawl. Here it is in it's current crumpled state. Next step--blocking. I have foamy things to use to block it on and have ordered blocking wires. Now I need a sunny day. (I'm going to have to do this outside.)
And I've begun the "Leftie" shawl. I'm calling it the leaf shawl.  Here are my colors and my first leaf. On the model, the colors really popped on the black.  Since I've taken this picture, I've made a leaf in each color and am getting the pattern down.  It's really easy and I think the effect is cool.
Here's the pattern cover.
Last weekend Hubby and I went to the Lubeznik gallery in Michigan City for their current show. It made us think, which I love.  We also had some nice conversations there and other visitors suggested a nearby restaurant, Panini Panini.  So we stopped in.
Hubby follows a very strict diet, so we're very careful about where we eat out (most places are impossible).  Panini, Panini was very helpful and made him a custom salad that I was told was great.
I indulged in pot roast with caramelized onions and brie. Oh, my! It was yummy. The service is interesting--paper covered planks. It's right on Franklin (Rt. 421) on the east side (near the Walgreens). Close to the outlet mall (and Lubeznik's). They have sandwiches, quiche, and pasta and were very busy when we were there. I also got an awesome (huge) coconut macaroon to bring home.

I'm really glad you managed to get suitable food, not all restaurants will do this. Steve looks happy!

That Leftie is going to be just stunning in black/brights!

Isn't it great when you can find a restaurant that is so agreeable?

I love the "Leftie" pattern and think it will be awesome in black!
