FOs: Dream Stripes Plus; This One Won't Hurt You

It's very rare that something turns out exactly how I pictured it... but it happened this time:
modified Dream Stripes [Rav] by Cailliau Berangere; knit with approx one full skein's worth (440yds) of fingering weight leftovers

The edging is Petal Trim, found in Betty Barnden’s Crochet Stitch Bible [Rav], and I think this shawl looks even better than the pattern as written.  It's just kinda swoopy and stripy and pretty... yay.

 Also pretty, but in a different way: yarn uterus!
Womb [Rav] by MK Carroll; knit with less than 20yds of Lion Brand Wool-Ease in colorway Rose Heather
MODS: worsted weight rather than bulky weight yarn; down 2 needles sizes (to US6); no pipe cleaners

...yeah, I really don't have much to add on that one.  :)

The green blanket hasn't really been touched since last week, so I'm going to get right on that, and... what else.  Sorry, I'm tired, yo.  Bed sounds amazing right now.  Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm okay g'night.
