Shawl for my daughter …
12/02/2016 § 3 Comments
I promised her this for her birthday in December but hadn’t even started it then. Fortunately we have a very relaxed attitude to such things and she knew I wanted to make her something special but I needed to be ‘in the mood’!
I’ve so enjoyed creating this – no pattern – but my usual combination of a 3-cornered knitted scarf with crochet pineapple-ish lace edging, to keep her warm as she travels to work and out in the evenings with her friends.
It was going to be just the linen colour, but she has a teal bag (which I love) and I had some beautiful alpaca in the perfect shade and the red – well, we both love red and it’s a deep cherry red – warm and cosy.
I think I may be ‘back in the groove’ earlier than I expected. Building works will be done by the end of the month and I spent yesterday afternoon in the garden, turning over the veg plots and putting my early seed potatoes on the workbench to sprout.
The sun has been shining just a bit this week and has a remarkable effect – on all the bulbs and winter flowering cherry blossom – and makes me want to dance about! I’ve booked up some fairs for the year and have listed a few quilts in my Quilt Shop. I’m linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts on Finish it up Friday too.
Enjoy your weekend, what will you be up to?
