Silver Lake is a special place, one of peace, friendship and beauty. It's a spot that draws us on a regular basis, one we can travel to quickly from our home. The short walk around the lake, about a mile, is just enough to calm the soul and enrich the spirit. Silver Lake is also a perfect place to photograph finished project, to show a creation of ones own.
Traveling Woman (a free Ravelry download) was happy to travel up the canyon for her debut. If one is known as a traveling woman, then she should travel when she can. Silver Lake will not be her last stop, as she unfurls her wings for a flight across country, to adorn the shoulders of a friend.
Happily, there was sufficient yarn to add a repeat and make the shawl a little larger, even if there was a little deep breathing during the bind off. Ten yards was all that was left (with a sigh of relief).
After struggling the last few months to find my love of the process, it has returned with a flourish. Traveling Woman, in combination with the divine yarn, assures me she will be the warm hug I cannot give in person.
