WIP-it Wednesday...

...only one WIP picture to show, but I do have pictures of the finished shawl!

I started a second hat for the Husband, the Jacques Cousteau hat [Ravelry] by Lalla Pohjanpalo. I haven't gotten very far, but it looks like it will fit his head.

I haven't taken a recent picture of the mermaid, but I have finished her hair (HURRAY!). I need to finish her arms and the vase that she is holding.  The next step will be to do the back-stitching.  I'm getting closer to the beading!

None of the other WIPs have received any play in the last month.

Now for the shawl pictures. I have not been successful taking a picture of the whole shawl, but I do have the following pictures.
