Sugar Maple and The Travelling Woman!
I am finally getting finished with the Sugar Maple Shawl I am making for my oldest daughter Megan. I am making hers in black with a very tiny glimmer of silver thread running through the yarn. Last night I spent over an hour trying to figure out how to pick up all the stitches to make the ruffle on the oblong part I had knitted. I finally figured it out and tonight I should be starting the ruffle! Hopefully it won't take much longer so she can start using it with the cooler mornings and evenings we have been having.
I will then be starting another type shawl called The Travelling Woman. Here is a photo of what it will look like, but I will be making it in another color.
I have a lovely baby alpaca/merino cream yarn or a lighter weight yarn that is the colors of leaves and berries. Such choices I have to make!!
Feeling better today after just resting last night and having soup. I will continue drinking lots and resting! Thanks for everyone that wished me well!
Everyone have a wonderful day!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
