A Gift "for" the Sea, Family and Friends, and Peach Agrodolce...
Last month, my daughter and her friends (from all the way back to pre-high school) had planned a beach vacation to include all the new little members of this herd.
I had seen this pattern, Little Shells by Holly and Ella Knits (www.hollyandellaknits.com) and it sounded perfect for a seaside accessory. There was some Rowan Organic Purelife Cotton left from Roo's Coming Home experiments... and the next thing I knew, a shawl was begun. A gift for the sea...
Had to whisk it straight off the blocking spot to the post-office for it to make the trip. Amanda graced me with some wonderful photos made by her friend, Lauri.
And, a treasured family photo from their vacation time. Love this little crew!
AND, a photo of the whole little herd as it has expanded from the four girls I am so proud to know... to include some amazing husbands and precious growing families... How wonderful is that? Makes me smile.
And, this is a bad phone photo... but you should really give this one a try!! Grilled Pork with Peach Agrodolce!! My friend, Tricia at Saving Room for Dessert just posted this one and my, oh, my!! We loved it!!
Now, if I could just get Amanda here to model ALL my knitting projects! ;)
blessings to all ~ tanna
