A huge public thank you to executrix, who found me the perfect holiday gift, then made it better by adding something beautiful that she created with her own hands.

I can't believe it! I got home tonight to find an odd flat package on my doorstep. Peered at the return address label and recognized the RL name of executrix and, utterly mystified, I opened it to find...

...this fantastic poster, which is not only thematically apt (bicycles! wine! French-style poster art!), but a perfect fit in my living room color scheme!:

From Executrix

It makes me smile just to look at it, so I made it into an icon. A Bikon!

And below it, there under my helmet, a lovely and warm hand-crocheted shawl that will look great piled around my neck while I'm riding in the cold.



I have no clue what I did to deserve this bounty, but it's absolutely fantastic and I'm overwhelmed. Thank you, executrix! Happy holidays!

Your wish is my command. The whole shawl is about six feet long, with tapered edges (about 5 feet long on the bottom edge). Here's a picture of half of it, with the tapered edge. It's alternating bands of a variegated blue and a plain sea-green, with a third color in the fringe.

It's clearly worked from a chainstitch start on the longest edge, and it looks like the triangle pattern is three double-crochets into a single stitch, then chain 3, skip 3, and repeat.

I'll ask executrix if she's got a pattern she'd like to share.
