Beautiful Weather

We've had some pretty nice weather the past few days. Although the flowers, trees and gardens needed the rain I'm real happy to see a little sunshine. The weather cleared up enough for my DH to put up the new mailbox. Ours was a victim of the snowplow in the only real storm we had this past winter.
I was able to get a few pictures on the lawn of the coiled rope rug I just finished.
I loved the finished rug so much I made a bowl like it which is in my Etsy shop.
I've used lots of scraps making these two items but let me tell you it didn't even put a dent in the scrap pile!
Today I will being finishing up this black, white and gray table runner. I made it with the leftovers of a charm pack from Connecting Threads and a few black and white prints from my collection.
This evening while I watch my struggling Phillies play I plan to work on this test shawl for a designer on Ravelry. I'm using Knit Picks Comfy fingering yarn.

Oooo - that rug did turn out gorgeous. No wonder you needed to make a bowl as well. :) Really love the test shawl you're working on - pretty colors together.
