My Pretty Shawl

No.  I didn't knit this!
My sister made it for me.

She's the knitter.

It is the softest thing you can imagine!
Must be mohair.
And light as a feather.  But warm.

I love to wear it.
It makes me feel elegant.

Next time I will fasten it with a Cameo.
That would be pretty.

How many of you knit??

This is beautiful! I can see how soft it is. I just wish I could touch it! I am learning to knit and crochet. I've made 4 sweaters and just started my 5th. I actually have known the stitches for years, I just didn't know how to read a pattern or actually make something other than a square or rectangle.

Jeannie..that is lovely...and gives me hope for some of my 'inherited' wool from dear mom. I knit...and sew and smock and embroider and needle tat and and and. YOU know how it is when we love to be 'domestic' goddesses but modern day women...not enough time in any day. I would beg your sister for the pattern please...I have some soft light wool...just right for that !! Karin

I love to knit. I love to do so many things. I love to try and make baby daygowns. I'm getting better at it. I love to smock also. That also needs practice. You are a great inspirer.

I can knit a little bit, but it definitely is NOT calling, that would be smocking, my favorite.

Lovely shawl. I do knit but I am not that fast. I do not think I have enough life left to knit a shawl.
