Garden party shawl.....



Al finished her Koigu garden party shawl. So whimsical, I love it. She warns that most of the colors are unavailable now. THere are so many new Koigu mixes that I don't think that should stop anyone.

It is my parents wedding anniversary. I don't remmeber how many years. Long enough that they move like a pair of fish on some days, turning in unison, darting about together. Other days they closely resemble Frank and Marie on Everybody Loves Raymond. Anyhow, I wish I'd thought ahead and made them dishrags: one of the flag of Ireland, on of the flag of Hungary. Maybe for Christmas!

I'm knitting from the top down, the same old tried and true Knitting pure and Simple pattern for a raglan. For my sister, Michelle who moved to MN this summer. Don't need anything new right now. Content to knit the known.

Do you have a tried and true pattern that you knit over and over? I'd love to know about it.

Hi, Kathy, I'm sure it's obvious, but I can't find your e-mail. I finally have a post card for you. Would you please e-mail your address to naturalbodycare(AT)netzero (dot) com. Thanks!

What a beautiful shawl! Great job Al!
The thing I knit the most is my 68 stitch plain sock. They fit great and sometimes you just have to let the yarn speak for itself.

Al's shawl is lovely. Other than socks, I usually tend not to make anything more than once. Every now and then I'll make an exception.
