A Good Friend…

…is not only someone who is always ready with the bail fund, it’s someone who will knit a wedding shawl for you.

Not once, but twice.

Because you RILLY want a big-arsed lace shawl as a veil.

Then, if your friend is as awesome as my friend, they will worry that it isn’t big enough.

Until you finally get off your lazy butt and block it.

…and it takes up most of your living room floor.

Then you unpin it, hold it up and realize…

That seven feet wide is plenty big enough.  ;o)

Cookie, you are a knitting goddess.  I will cherish this shawl forever and it will be a wonderful ‘Cookie Hug’ on my wedding day.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart. xoxo  (I’d offer you my first born as thanks but I’m pretty sure you don’t want her… ;op )

Project Details:

Pattern: Cap Shawl from Victorian Lace Today

Yarn: Zephyr Lace in Vanilla

Other Details: You’re going to have to check with the knitting goddess on that one, I’m not sure on needle size but I think knitting time was like 20 minutes.  ;op

On an important and completely unrelated note – Happy Birthday, Mom!



Aestlight…

…is finished!

Aestlight Shawl

…and that makes me *very* happy.

This shawl is all garter stitch – I never thought I’d actually miss purling.

Hopefully, we’ll have a couple more days if chilly weather so I can wear it at least once before putting it away until the Fall.

What’s up next?  Bags.  Bags, bags and more bags.  I feel like the guy on the Dunkin Donuts commercials, I keep wandering in and out of the sewing room muttering, “it’s time to make the baaaags.”

Why all the crazy sewing and muttering?  I’m vending on Saturday, here, along with a bunch of my friends who make fibery stuff (Tina has a list here).  If you are within driving distance, maybe you’ll stop by?  It’s a wonderful show, right on the Hudson with gorgeous views of the river.

If you do stop by, please say hello!  I love to meet blog readers in person – and please tell me who you are because I’m kind of an idiot when it comes to putting faces to names.  ;o)

Okay, time to make the bags!
