Yay! Congratulations!

Coffeechris, you need to email me by Friday to let me know your mailing address. My email is on the sidebar, just click. I hope to hear from you very soon and all of this fun swag will be coming your way. Enjoy your lucky day.
Now for the rest of you, my most sincere thanks for taking the time to enter and for the loving comments you gave me. I am sending all that love right back to you. You are the generous ones for sharing your time and stories with me. Thank you.
Back to my real blog life now, I just finished a second Anne scarf. This time I used Blue Sky Alpacas cotton in tulip, which is a crispy white. It is gorgeous and soft.
These scarves are already off to my mother-daughter friends who I love. The reason I wanted to make this pattern for them is that their mother/grandma loved Queen Anne's Lace, which is the lace pattern used in the scarf. She has passed away several years ago and they miss her terribly. I was thinking about all three of them as I worked, sending positive thoughts their way.

I love how you can intertwine meaning and energy into your knitting and crocheting projects. That's really the purpose of it all, right?

What a fun week, Knitters.
best, susie

I think that is why my kids and I are so attached to blankets my mom crochet's for us.

Those scarves are lovely!
