August 2014 - our 68 year old neighbor across the street who lives alone had a punk kick in her front door in the middle of the day and steal her jewelry, including all that she had just inherited from her mother who recently passed…nothing can replace what she’s lost but I decided to give her this so that she has a new pretty keepsake to wear (and in the end it turns out there really was a reason that I knit two sandness shawls) ~ now if only we can do something to return her sense of security to her…
another really well written pattern ~ the knitting itself has a beautiful rhythm to it that’s easy to memorize and hard to put down ~ I’ve already pulled yarn from my stash for a second sandness as soon as this one is done (and I hardly ever knit 2 of the same thing, especially one right after the other)…I found myself putting #2 together in my head before I was halfway done with #1 (project notes here) :)
wool people vol 5 easily my favorite book so far ~ it was hard to choose the first thing I wanted to knit
and the yarn ~ I’ve used Hazel Knits before but this is my first Entice MCN project…that little bit of cashmere was worth every penny!
