I feel so remiss. I have been so busy lately that I almost forgot to post this.
A while ago - I implored upon a friend of mine to weave me a shawl. Not just any shawl mind you, but a special shawl - special to me.
Nina took the challenge (even though she was moving). I sent her a quantity of rovings - and she went to work - spinning and weaving.
Much sooner than I expected - she called to say that the shawl was done.
Here are the results.
A beautiful shawl - made from the wool of all my
I call it my "baby blanket". I wear it every night when I am watching television. It is so soft and warm - and surprisingly - it isn't scratchy next to the skin.
And the most important part - it has wool from almost all my sheep - past and present in it.
This means a lot to me - and it is so cherished.
I can't remember the weave that she used -
here it is up close.
Unfortunately - I find that the flash kind of washes out the colour.
I am so pleased - and grateful.
Thank you Nina!
