It Was a Good Day

In the words of Ice Cube, "Today it was a good day."

As most of you know, I'm running this year for the title of Eugene Slug Queen.  I'm knitting my gown and I've also knitted a parasol to match.  Today, I finally finished it and put it on the umbrella frame.  It looks so amazing.  If I never knit another thing again, I'll be okay.  Because I have this.

Name: Parasol Fit for a Queen
Pattern: Frosted Ferns #7633 by Herbert Niebling
Yarn: Huckleberry Knits BFL/silk lace
Colorway: Weeping Willow
Yardage: approx. 500 yards

Also today, my family took a little road trip up to Woodburn, Oregon today to see the Tulip Festival.  Tulips are my favorite flower and I haven't been to the festival in a few years.  Here are some of my favorite photos from today.
