Wool Peddler Shawl and more!

Here it is -- The Wool Peddler Shawl in progress. I'm not sure the color came out right -- it's a dark red that I simply love, and a bit brighter than shown here. My only problem so far is that I tried to "spit splice" (say that 5 times fast) when joining a new skein, and it must be that my spit isn't sticky enough, because it came undone. I've carefully tied the ends into a square knot, and will try to split the strand and weave the plys in with a needle.
Almost done is what I'm calling Baby Sarah's sweater. My friend is due in mid-April, and she's already named the bambino. She picked the colors and I made up the design.
And, in honor of the first day of Spring, here is Elvis, trying to get the birds feeding on the deck.
Dream on, feline!

Oh both your projects are looking great. I'm impressed that it's nearly done and it's not even the end of March yet.

Poor Elvis. So close but yet so far.
