Comments: I found this to be a really enjoyable knit. No pattern problems, very straight forward intructions...I could start another one right now.

Other news: Almost finished Mariah 2nd. I'm seaming and should have it done very soon. Zigzag's last sleeve will be cast on right after Mariah's finished.

Keep On Knitting...

oo, ooo, ooooo! i'm thinking about making the flower basket shawl, but i'm thinking about using my own handspun silk. do you think silk would work for this? the giftee is allergic to wool, and i'm pretty sure cotton wouldn't work for this. i need to get going on the spinning, lol.

Oh, Michelle...the shawl is oh so pretty! I really like the pink (and I am not a pink person). It's so feminine, and I bet it's so deliciously soft...and the best spring accesory a girl could have! Kudos to you, once again!

Love the soft pink color. Draping it on the dark chair really helped show the pattern.

Wonder if I can make one in ten days?

Beautiful!
