New shrug and Shannon's shower

Hello, Everyone,
It's a chilly late night after a warm Tuesday, very fall-ish.  I feel ok, bit of a sinus thing going on.  It makes me want to sleep a lot during the day, then I can't sleep at night, sigh.  I was listening to Paul Schoenfield: Cafe Music on KUSC, now it's Segovia playing Schumann.

I'm crocheting a filet heart doily from   He has some very interesting stuff.  I want to learn his Delta crochet, it's like filet, but triangles instead of squares.  Interesting stuff.  

I finished a new shrug.  It's based on an interesting baby jacket construction.  It's a puzzle sweater in the same way the BSJ is one, you make a very odd shape with lots of increases and then seam a few short seams and , Voila, a sweater emerges.  This one is a different odd shape from the BSJ, but the puzzle concept is the same.  I took a baby sweater, removed the sleeves, upsized radically, and it's a shrug for me. 

Sunday I went to a shower with Heather for Shannon.

 It was fun.  Lots of silly shower games.
Here she is with her grandmother, Betty.  I had a great time.

We went to dinner with Dare at Amarin Thai on Mira Mesa Blvd.  Yum, yum.  We're talking about going back next Sunday.  Spicy but oh-so good.  

Lilo gave up on me and went to sleep.  I'd better get in myself.

Good night,
