My granddaughter asked for a gray shawl for her 12th birthday.
It must be soft and warm and machine washable,
and Superlana by Lana Grossa was a great choice, plus was in my stash.
The pattern is Bolting by Stephen West, Ravelry link here.
I was looking for a shawl that was a little hip and not lace
and knew that Stephen West's designs would have many choices.
Annie and her mom were very happy with it!
Sweet and sophisticated Annie,
pretty and kindhearted,
artist and singer,
straight A student
and an accomplished knitter!
I was assured that this was a very rare siting of a pre-teen
actually ready for school early, with minutes to spare and knitting in hand even!
Perhaps in honor of grammy and papa's visit?
On this trip, with about 5 hours of driving each way,
I made seismic strides on my Tea with Jam and Bread.
On the drive we listened to the very charming
a very entertaining book about a Botswana Safari Guide.
|I knit my sleeves flat.|
I have this to finish this, then Irish Coffee to block and photograph,
and next I will be hard onto my Christmas knitting projects.
See you soon with more knitting!
