the rest of my knitted gifts...

I finished Mom's shawl on Christmas Eve Eve. (December 23rd)
I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
Mom was quite pleased with it too!
It's so pretty & soooo soft!
The photo below looks like the sort of gift I would love to receive...
it's not for me!

This is what happens when you don't get all your knitting projects done!
It is supposed to be a cabled sweater for my sister Aimee.

I got her a necklace & headband & stuck them in the bottom of the box.
Then I piled in the yarn for her cabled sweater & a "learn to knit" booklet!
Inside the booklet was a little note.
I think I thought it was a lot funnier than she did!
(I can't help it if I crack myself up!)
Thankfully her birthday is in February - a more realistic goal.
We should still have some winter weather left to wear it in too -
if this year turns out anything like the last.


  1. That shawl is beautiful. I love the color, and it looks so fine it's hard to believe it was done by hand. She'll need the warmth in her dotage. You're good. And funny too. Next time I see Amy I'll remind her that she's really fortunate to have such a funny, knitting sister. :D

    1. I've taken to calling it her Miss Marple shawl. :D
      Poor Aims...she's used to me by now though. ;)

  2. LOL! Love Aimee's trick gift, but I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product. ;-)

    1. Glad to know there are others who understand my humor! ;) I'll definitely post about the sweater once it's finished.

  3. that's a **lovely** shawl! the color and the knit style. beautiful work. :)

    1. Thanks jAne! I really enjoyed making it. It's fun to make pretty things. :D
