At the end of January, during one of my beloved "Snow Days", I started this teal paints shawl from my stash. This yarn was special to me because I bought it in Michigan when my family and I went to visit my brother this past summer. He took me to a Joann's Superstore (none of which exist in my state), and I was in awe. My brother wanted to spend time with each family member individually and this is how we spent our moments...with yarn. :-)
Well, after starting the shawl, I quickly ran out of this yarn and you know it couldn't be find anywhere nearby. So what did I have to do? Order a couple of skeins from Joann's to finish this piece. (Yes, this is within the confines of the beloved "yarn diet".) :-D I got the yarn this past Thursday and finished the shawl on Saturday. Desi and I have waited to show you this shawl (which is the same as the one I made my grandmother on her birthday, but blocked severely) and now we can:
It will be in the shop soon!
