Another Shawl

I finished another prayer/friendship shawl the other day.
This was was for "Sex-eh Nonna"...

She's been hinting (badly) for awhile now that she wanted one. Last time she was over, I asked her if she would like this one-she laughed and said.. "Of course!".

It's made with a chunky, Marble yarn from England. Loved working with it. Will use it again.

This pattern was the same as the last. Increase one stitch each row until I made it to 110 stitches. (started with 15 and just plain knit).

I'm working on one for Massimo now. He keeps asking me over and over why I don't make him one so.. I've got some brown yarn and I'm using it. (I'm sure he'll hate it in about a year but.. oh well). 

I'm going to try a new pattern soon. I'll let you know how it turns out when I'm finished. :)

It is beautiful!! I use the one you gave me all the time because- as you know- I hate to be chilly! Also, because it reminds me of you and how wonderful of a friend you are ♥

Very nice and I know that your mother-in-law feels blessed by your generosity. I love that Mass wants one, too.

It's very nice, but I can't imagine why Massimo wants one. I hope you'll make him wear it and take a picture for us!

What gorgeous colours! For a minute there I thought it was a sky shawl, where you do one row a day in whatever colour the sky is that day.

Very nice!

Tell Mass he only gets one if he will take care of it.

Beautiful, Laura!

Kellie, I love the idea of the sky shawl!

Laura said...

Kim~ Aww thanks so much! I'm so happy to hear that you are enjoying yours. It was my pleasure to make it for you. :)

Vee~ My MIL has even been wearing it to work. It's so nice when people appreciate home made gifts. :)

G.B~ Mass loves to snuggle up in things but I do believe he is eyeing one to be used as a "super hero cape". ;D

Kellie~ I've never heard of that type of shawl. Sounds like an awesome idea! Thanks so much. :)

Thunder~ He'll take care of it for now. Probably will toss it somewhere in a couple of years though. ;)

Blue Girl~ Thank you so much! I love Kellie's idea as well! :)

Massimo wants one because he's a superhero, and you know how those folks dig capes, even though capes are no good.

Laura said...

Big B~ Despite what the movie says.. capes are good. As far as Mass is concerned anyways. ;P
