The Amazing Lace!

Well, here we are at the beginning of the Amazing Lace! Selection is down to the final three and a decision must be made by Captain Lindsey. In the running are: Indigo Zephyr, Peacock Zephyr and Ruby Zephyr. Each have their strengths and weaknesses and it's not going to be easy to choose just one. Let's see what our group is up to.


Ruby is intensely studying the Summer into Fall shawl pattern, trying to decide on the best plan of attack. Indigo and Peacock seem to be calculating how far it is to Hawaii. Uh, does anyone know about any plans to go to Hawaii? No, me neither.

Moving on!



Ruby is really working those circulars in preparation for the task ahead. She jumps that thing so fast you can hardly see her feet!



Hmm, I guess Indigo and Peacock are just resting up a bit before they start their training.



After jumping rope, Ruby moves right on to the swift. Wow, look at her go!



Indigo and Peacock seem to be working on... uh... their tans...



Boy that Ruby is a real fireball! Here she is, well into the 8th mile of her daily 10 mile jog. Watch out for that car, Ruby!


Indigo and Peacock seem to be taking a nap...



After a refreshing shower, Ruby enjoys a healthy snack of carrots and celery.



What the ...??? Did they drink half that bottle of tequila already? Oh for crying out loud, somebody get Indigo some coffee!

Well, the competition has been a joke fierce. Captain Lindsey needs a teammate who works hard and is willing to go the extra mile. She's ready to make her announcement. Shhh, everybody listen!

And the winner is...

INDIGO!

Just kidding...

It's Ruby!!! Hooray! Hardworking, dependable AND good-looking! Let's have another look at our winner.



Congratulations, Ruby - great job!

Tune in next time to check out the progress our new team has made!

Heehee! I think you made a wise choice with Ruby there. Maybe Indigo and Peacock will get inspired by Ruby. Or maybe they'll be in Hawaii sipping mai tais.

this is great! i'm using the ruby for the Frost Flowers and Leave, but that color will be just lovely for Summer Into Fall.

Maybe my Ruby is your Ruby's long lost twin sister?
