Carol's La Boheme Scarf by Fiesta Yarns

Carol made this pretty shawl for her daughter.

It was her daughters birthday and she had lamented that her mom had never knitting anything for her.  Now she has!

This is a pretty yarn that has little bluish highlights mixed into it. 

I'm ready for the Olympics, are you?
Rooting for Gracie Gold, and Zach's doubles
tennis partner: Brian Hansen (speed skater.) 
Brian is a great guy.  Zach and Brian went to high school together and were on the Tennis doubles team one year until Brian broke his arm.  Brian medaled in the last Olympics as an underdog.  We wish him all the best in Russia.  

Don't forget to leave a comment on yesterday's post to enter my Valentine Blog contest.

I'll have to catch the Olympics on the news since I don't have cable anymore. Hopefully, some video highlights will be available for streaming.

Carol's shawl is lovely.

Beautiful shawl!! Lucky daughter!

The Olympics are made for knitting. I can't wait to watch Zach's friend Brian in the Olympics. I will pray for him because I hear Sochi is not a nice place to be right now.

That's a very pretty shawl. Lucky girl.

What a great connection to know one of the Olympian competitors... I will keep my eye out for this young man and watch the event!

I bet there will be a lot of needles clicking through the Olympics!
