Here Comes The Bride And Fiber Too!

Some that have come into the shop know that I've been knitting the Swan Lake Shawl for a nieces wedding. I have only 93 rows to go and the blocking to be done and it will be in her hands on her wedding day. I will post the picture when it is blocked. On Sunday my husband and I went to Lowe's and I bought an 8 foot sheet of blue insulation styrofoam to do my large blocking on. It can be placed out on my deck on nice days and possibly cut my drying time down a little bit. Of course I will have to stand guard to keep birds away if you know what I mean!

My niece has grown from a beautiful child into a gracious, beautiful young woman. Time goes by so quickly and if we're not careful we'll miss so much. I admire her for her independence, her talent, and her sweetness of spirit. I remember the first time she told me she was going into toe shoes in her ballet class and now she is going to be married! I just couldn't be prouder of her.

I'm getting things ready for Sedalia and am looking forward to seeing friends old and new. Not to mention getting to fondle fiber!

Hope to see you all!
