They’re coming!…

She won’t see this between the airport and here, and I’m not sure I’ll get a chance to photograph it later, so I’m sneaking a moment in to post this: this is the shawl for Ann, after finally blocking it last night. It’s not a new pattern, it’s my Peace shawl, but as two families prepare to come together, I really think it’s the right one.

She and her husband live in a warm climate, so it had to be lightweight. My daughter-in-law-to-be, when I asked her at Christmas what her mom’s favorite color was, said light blue, and I went all over Stitches West looking for just the right shade of light blue I wanted in silk. I didn’t find it. (The bulkiness and bother of my scooter while trying to get into booths may have played a part there, dunno.) But I did find this baby alpaca/silk wisp of a yarn at Ellen’s Halfpint Farm, and it leaped out at me. I turned away and left it there, came back later, and it was still calling out, Me! ME!

And so here it is. For Conway’s daughter-in-law and Kim’s mom. As I wait for the doorbell to ring. Ann’s shawl

Beautiful — a lovely shawl. I’m starting the biggest lace project that I’ve ever attempted — I hope mine turns out as well!

Oh it’s gorgeous! Love the scarf in the Hospitalist post as well – what pattern is that? What a great name for the white trees – California snow drifts. I’m having trouble staying on the road when I drive around – so many gorgeous blossoms everywhere!

Alison, it’s absolutely gorgeous! She’s going to be stunned…and thrilled…and when she’s able to breathe again…and speak, I’m sure she’ll thank you. 🙂 ….and treasure it always. What a thoughtful gift.
