Knitted not Blocked, My Part is Finished

Diligently I have been keeping to my goal to finish at least three shawls before I started another. (I have yarn and patterns for four shawls, patiently waiting).

Hope’s shawl made from garage sale find by Grandpa Red and sox yarn. I like the way it finished and hope a young girl will remember Grandpa when she wears it.

Shelby is Hope’s older sister. If you make a shawl for one granddaughter, the other granddaughter needs one, too. I love this yarn, the colors are bright, the stitch definition is good and it felt nice as it flowed through my fingers.

To see what others are finishing check out FO Fridays and Fiber Arts Friday.

Yarn Along — When You Give a Knitter . . .

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading,
. . .and joining ‘Yarn Along.’
I find sooooo many knitting and reading ideas; soooooooo little time!

One day a couple months ago upon hearing a knock at the door, I found my neighbor with a big smile on his face and a an old cardboard box in his hands.
” I found this today at the yard sale.”

Inside I found pink,   ahhhh bright pink mohair yarn.

I said, “Oh, Shirley will like this” shuttering a little inside.

Shirley said “NO.”

When you give a knitter yarn with a big smile and a huge heart, she might make a fun, happy shawl for your young grand daughter!
