I am a Winner!

 There are many good things about the internet, one is being able to meet people of like interests and strike up a friendship.  One of these blogs about a talented lady who is a designer, knitter and quilter and also a Christian.  She recently held a celebration for meeting last year's goals in knitting and passed along the joy by having a flurry of giveaways; I am the happy recipient of her Elizabeth Shawl!  Nyki approves.  She used sock weight yarn and beads to knit this shawl,  it is just so elegant!  Thank you, thank you! (You can find many of her pattterns for sale on Ravelry and at KnitPicks.)
I pulled the fine thread project off the rigid heddle loom and warped it with some Patons Bamboo yarn-a much happier weave.  (I am going to try to weave the bookmarks on the floor loom where I do not have to try and use double rigid heddle reeds to knit them!  Note to self-you do NOT like to use double reeds on the rigid heddle loom-EVER.)

  6. What a stunning shawl!!! And Nyki matches it so well (this is good to know - most fiber things tend to not match the cat).
