A New Home

My grandmother has been in town this week, and she fell in love with my Diamond Fantasy Shawl. She gave all the appropriate exclamations and made all sorts of gushing noises, so it will go home with her. It is safely packed (and locked!) in her suitcase ready to fly home. You can see how much she loves it:

Barb has a DFS2 KAL planned for July, and I have a larger skein of Fleece Artist set aside for this purpose. I plan to make a larger shawl which I will keep. I need to finish the P socks and Cece first.

That is such a lovely picture!! How happy is she!!! Such a great color on her. She will think about you whenever she wears it. That's worth it's weight in gold! You are a great grand daughter!

I think that subconsciously, you made the shawl just for your grandmother. It looks so good on her, and she looks so happy.
