Last Friday night, I had to rummage through my yarn-basket and find something to start a Prayer Shawl... a work-in-progress to take with me Sunday... to a "job fair" of sorts at our church showcasing the different ministries available for folks to join and participate. Not a lot of time! No real opportunity to plan or shop!
Desperation can give birth to some strange ideas. I would never use this yarn to do this pattern again, but it has kind of grown on me for this one time. So has the pattern, which is crochet. I can already see that I am going to have to try it in a baby alpaca or some other delicious natural fibre. I am looking forward to finishing this one soon just to see the finished product.
My poor little sweater that I started for myself has taken the backseat to a kimono and a shawl!
I worked on it a bit today with the ladies in Lindale at Rose Path. I enjoy the Monet-like look of this Shannon yarn as it works up.
Then, there was the watercolor class... still a WIP, but I can tell this is going to be no Soon Y. Warren experience... I'm about to just get her book and start reading and trying... ahhhh...
Rachel, at Rose Path was kind enough to send me a photo she had made of the shawl I finished for Mom's Christmas. It is Rowan Big Wool with the most wonderful shawl pin from Michelle.
This is Michelle's lovely daughter, Katie modeling for Rachel's photoshoot. Thank you, Rachel and Katie.
On a random note, if you need a good laugh, I loved Dilemma with Vince Vaughn. Evan and I even laughed all the way home, with tears streaming down our faces! Both of us!
