The latest pink shawl has been sent off to an elderly and housebound friend who has a hard time dressing stylishly and loves something pretty to throw over her shoulders.
I also finished off this La-La made by holding the Noro lace yarn along with a strand of grey Karabella lace weight Mohair. Someone commented that he wood really brings out the grey in the scarf in this picture. That made me laugh.
While in Wakefield, I made my annual appearance at my friends' knit night. It was held at potter Maureen's with my sister Tina, friends Julie and Kathryn, and a couple of others in attendance. I don't remember their names but they had done interesting things locally like bringing back midwifery in the 1970's. Kathryn has been hand dying Amtex yarn - superb yarn, superb colours. She has a small studio in Wakefield and has done some kits with patterns by Julie. Hope to see more from them. Wish I had a link to share.
It was a fun but exhausting week. We had to cart in our drinking water. Good thing there were 2 sisters and a daughter to spread the load.
