A shawl for Mothers Day


I had a wonderfull day with my daughter spent watching movies and hanging out.... and knitting. After having to un-knit (tink) 2 rows of lace pattern (total nightmare) I was able to finish my "Traveling Woman" shawl. Yippee!!! This was my first shawl and my first time reading a lace chart. It's such a feeling of acomplishment. I still have to block it, but concidering summer is here, that may wait for a bit till I have some other things to block with it. Blocking is almost as repulsive to me as a gauge swatch, so I like to put it off till I have a few things and can do them all at once.

To my amazing mother, I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART. I could never put to words how much I admire, respect and cherish you and our relationship. Thankyou for all you have ever done for me (even if I didn't understand at the time). Thankyou for changing my diapers. Thankyou for teaching me how to be strong. Thankyou for showing me compassion. Thankyou for nurturing my creative side. Thankyou for always being my number 1 fan. I would not be the person I am today without you. I am everything I am because of you.
