Well, I haven't shown you all any pictures lately have I? I am telling you I have been very busy. Here is a group of pictures of one project I have been working on and finished for my sister.
I called it Shelly after my sister Michelle.
The funny thing is that anybody who has made a prayer shawl before knows that making a prayer shawl or in this case a stole is something that a knitter or crocheter makes for a loved one when the loved one needs a little extra prayer. Well, my sister gets the emails from lion brand and I guess in a recent email they talked about prayer shawls.
That day, my sister called me on the phone and asked me to make her one. Now, this is when she was really sick...remember me telling you all about that?
I laughed when I got the phone call. I told her that she is not supposed to ask for one! LOL BUT, I also told her I already had one planned for her which is the truth.
Well, my sister and I are bigger girls...I am MUCH bigger than her but we are both the same height. I knew that she would want a longer stole and something that would not add too much bulk. BUT what do you do when she wants Lion Brand Homespun yarn? That just screams BULK RIGHT?
So, I designed a stole that would be light and Lacy.
Here is what I made :-)
I thought it would be funny to wrap her up in it like a straight jacket :-)
