FO Friday!

Dear blog friends....I feel I owe you an explanation for my quietness this week.  School/work got a little overwhelming this week so something had to suffer....so the blog was quiet. I think things are better now!   I so enjoy blogging and sharing what I'm working on with you all...you encourage me, inspire me, and welcome me to your world with such open arms.  But I also chose not to feel guilty if the blogging doesn't happen....so without further ado let me tell you about what I've been working on!

Needles: US 8
Yarn: 4 oz of handspun done on my spindle! about 350yds...color: Cocoa
Mods:  I didn't end on the row they told me to, but it worked out just fine.
Made for:  Mamie (DH's grandma)

The ladies at knit night think I give too much of my knitting away, but I think that is half the fun.  Thinking about someone I don't see very often and making them something special so they can think about me in the year ahead.  Oh well, I'll do what I want!

Lindy and I are still doing well and we've been busy, look to see what we've been doing on Monday!  Enjoy the weekend, I know I will!

You have a huge heart, it's only natural to give away most of what you make. And I agree that is part of the fun!

The shawl is so beautiful and I'm super impressed with you and your thoughtfulness.

I give 90% of my knitting away. I think that is what makes it fun to knit.
This shawl is lovely!

The majority of my knitting is for someone else....normally my kids. It makes me happy so that's all that matters. If you enjoy giving away the stuff you knit then you're doing the right thing. :)

The shawl is beautiful!

I agree, it's fun to knit for others, I think I'd do more if I weren't so slow :-)

It is beautiful and Mamie will love it I'm sure. It will make her feel so special. I know because when I wear mine I feel special and loved. You do amazing work especially to us who cannot do what you can do.
Love you!
Mom

It's beautiful! And to think that you spun all that yarn on a spindle. That makes it even more special in my eyes.

This was a good post for me--since I am guilty of not blogging when I'm not up to it. Maybe I won't feel all guilty now when I'm sick, or I'm not working on anything. We're not teenagers after all, and blogging takes time!

Love, love that shawl!!

How lovely. I've kept most of my socks but all the others things I knit are gifts and unless they are awful I keep them.
