was needed. I finished my Taygete several weeks ago, and I was instantly in love. This design by Romi has to be one of my favorite knits. I knew I wanted to do it in our yarn and in one of my favorite bases, Stray Cat.
And as BossCat can tell you I want something in every base in her signature colourway "Misty Highland".
This project would have flew off the needles if I hadn't put it aside to finish other stuff, but alas it took a little longer than expected.
Then one day at work I found out that a very sweet co-worker of mine's sister has been stricken with colon cancer. She and her sister are very close, and I feel so bad for her to have to go through this. She has made ribbons in the signature colours of blue and brown to show support, and a light bulb went off. My shawl was blue and brown. Obviously a sign, I handed her the shawl to give to her sister in hopes it would give a little bit of support and warmth when needed.
This isn't the first time one of my shawls have been passed on, and even though it makes me very happy to pass on a little joy to someone who really needs a hug, it also makes me a little sad to see it go.
Now I'm off to decide what shawl to make next................
