Now, are these just too cute? Don't they say SPRING in a big way? Shannon sent these darling stitch markers as a true RAOK, as I have never been to her blog, and haven't been aware of her visiting mine. Thank you for such a fun gift (and the chocolate, too!). I can't wait to bring out my own flip-flops to wear.
Also, in yesterdays mail the yarn I HAD to purchase from Judy arrived. I 'had' to have this yarn to because it was just too beautiful on her blog and it need to live with me. (Other colors are available here.) This silk and merino is such a lovely yarn and I couldn't wait to dive in. Judy dyes and spins this herself! The 'oh so lively' green, which Judy called "Pond", is knitting up beautifully into a Leaf Lace Shawl. The pink 'Peony' is for me, project undetermined. It looks so gorgeous posing with my tiny little squill flowers.
This year I'm knitting a shawl for each of my sisters as their birthdays come around. It is an idea, something that grew into a reality, after Neena stole my Charlotte’s Web. So far, Melanie has received my first Flower Basket Shawl, Leeann's has another FBS and Karen will be the recipient of this beautiful Leaf Lace. One more sister and a sister-in-law to go. I'm enjoying knitting with your yarn, Judy!!
