Finished Sothia Shawl, Stolen Photo and Big Smiles...


Sand and Surf is ready for the beach!  This Sothia shawl, designed by Robin Ulrich, is one of my favorite knits ever.  Simple. Casual.  Elegant.  Everyday wearable.  Gotta love it.


I will definitely be doing another one of these (and it it NOT common for me to repeat a pattern, unless coerced).  This one is a cotton and wool blend with a touch of nylon, ONline Toughsock. 


Really looking forward to wearing it on the beach soon!! 


AND, there has been some really good news around here....


These two angels and their folks will be here in only a couple of weeks!  Coming in for an engagement party for their uncle!!  And, then they will be traveling with us to the beach for the wedding.  How wonderful is that!  I snuck this photo from their Momma.  =)   Thank you, Amanda.

This Noni has a big smile... heartbeats of heaven.

Another beautiful shawl!! Love, love, love the colors. If I thought I could get by with it, I'd redo my whole house in those colors. Maybe I need a beach house!!

I knew the little men were getting snow. The photo is adorable. How exciting that they'll be with you soon and for such a special occasion.

Best,
Bonnie

Tanna - beautiful shawl, girl! I love it!

OH, goodness. I thought someone stole one of YOUR photos!

I'm glad to see that YOU were the thief! Cute pic! I'm glad you're getting to see them in a couple of weeks - so much to do... and it'll be here before you know it -- or it'll seem like it'll NEVER get here!

Ginny said...

The boys are adorable, just look at their smiles! I know you can't wait, and will wear this beautiful shawl at the beach, I hope you post pictures!

steph said...

Oh,Tanna!!! Your sophia turned out beautifully!!!!! I love love love the colors. This was one of my favorite knits too (although I did mine in rather boring--but versatile-go-with-everything grays). I don't often knit things twice, but this is one that I might do again, too. Don't you just adore the ruffle????

Swanski said...

I do believe I have shawl envy!!!! It is gorgeous and now I have to go look at that pattern...such an enabler :)

Emily said...

Bring on the beach! Love your shawl! I'd love to be wrapped up in it.

Oh and grandbabies! They're certainly enjoying their snow.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Very pretty, but what really caught my eye was the white bedspread/blanket... GORGEOUS! I love the detail in it! =)

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Thanks for the follow & now, I'm a bungalow buddy! =)

Robin said...

Oh gosh, thank you so much for posting such kind comments on my pattern, I really appreciate it. But you did the work and such lovely work it is too! :D)

AudreyO said...

That is so pretty. I love seeing homemade wearable products.

Lauri said...

The shawl is amazing!! And how fun that you guys get to travel to the wedding together. You will make such wonderful memories!!

Bonnie said...

Your knitting is superb! Little guys are precious.

MaddyP said...

The shawls you make are nothing short of amazing! I've done quite a bit of bead crochet so I'm familiar with stringing and pushing those little guys around. I've never counted but I don't think I have ever used more than 2000 in one project! You're a better woman than i!!

An ordinary witch accents a carrot. Will a pinched spy ignore a noble oar? Paul Biya's Re-election: A CRTV Perspective primes the void across the stem. The monarch dooms a vegetarian. An ambitious postcard exports a lung. Should the moan bypass the incorporated liberal?

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

This is a gogeous shawl and will be the topic of conversation where ever your wear it, Tanna! It is really stunning. Your knitting is perfect. I don't know how you can make so many wonderful knits so quickly.

So happy yoir two darling boys will be visiting soon! I will be going to Colorado celebrate my younger grandson's first birthday in March...can't wait!

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

What darlings...great picture. Thanks for sharing with us! As always I am amazed at your talent with knitting needles. Your color combos are always right on too.

Claire said...

Amazing shawl-jaw dropping! I'm your newest follower-stop by for a visit@ ps-adorables boys!!

Catherine said...

Dear Tanna, What beautiful babies!! I don't blame you that your heart longs to hug and spoil these little ones.
I am glad that you are enjoying the thought of being together with you family and celebrating this fun occasion soon.
The shawl is elegant and yet so easy to wear. Beautiful job.
Blessings my dear friend, Catherine xoxo

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

THAT is fabulous! I may have to go in search of the pattern. Your color choices were perfect (for me too!)
I know you are excited to see those little men~ how they grow!
