Memories of Christmas Past


Given my trip to Chicago and the hectic nature of the holidays, I don't have any new photos to post of my knitting projects. I have been knitting but nothing is at an interesting enough point to post photos. So here is a photo of the Lady Elanor shawl I made for my Mom last Christmas. Since I didn't have a blog at that time I never posted a photo so I thought I would share it with you this holiday. It is made out of Karoke soy silk and it was very fun to knit but it took me 2 months. This year nothing quite so ambitious for holiday knitting. Sorry Mom!

Your Mom's shawl is so beautiful. I love entrelac, but I can only dream of knitting with such lovely yarn. You must have really enjoyed knitting it and I bet your Mom loves it dearly :)

happy knitting :)

I am tagging you, I hope you don't mind. You can find the rules on my blog. And the shawl is beautiful. Does the karaoke soften up some with blocking?
