Heartfelt Thanks and the Finish of a Promise
I could never express in words the deep sense of gratitude I feel to all of you who took the time, spent your energy and shared your experience to give me your help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am always filled with such a sense of awe at the amazing women, from early twenties to great-grandmothers, who come together in this odd little world of blogs offering encouragement and sharing their great wisdom. My heart is full. And, my mind is deep into the consideration of all the suggestions offered. Again, my thanks.
I finished this Promise Me design by Boo Knits. Bev, a.k.a. generous-gardener on Ravelry, makes intricate easy, for those of us who love great designs without having to contort ourselves or fry our brains trying to concentrate on the pattern. LOL!
And, this yarn.... oh, be still my heart. GRACIE lace by Fiesta yarns. It is 70% extrafine merino, 15% silk and 15% cashmere... I think it must be the cashmere that I am so in love with... This was my first experience with lace weight yarn. It took a little getting used to at first, but it is amazing!
The beading was done by a crochet method, so instead of stringing them and pushing them along, you add them as you come up to them with a tiny crochet hook (USE an addi brand 0.75!! so easy, no snagging).
I'm thinking this may become the Mother of the Groom shawl... Seems the Sand and Surf may not fit the color scheme, but it will still be fun on the beach!!
To those of you who offered me your wisdom, THANK YOU AGAIN. I hope I can demonstrate the lessons learned. =)
