i consider myself a very spiritual person. i believe there is a god and that he watches over us and sometimes gives us guidence and support. i believe in karma. i believe in the truth that what goes around comes around. i believe that what we do in this life will transpose to the next. Call me a hinducathoudist.
All I know is that when I pass on from this world I want to come back as Evelyn A. Clark.
Every shawl I have made (be that it's currently at Two) I am more and more in love with her eye for design. It's simple and yet striking. This is her Shetland Shawl from Wrap Style. It truly was a relaxing knit which had a pattern repeat that you can pretty much memorize after two go arounds. I did put it down for a bit... it was supposed to be my mother's 35th wedding anniversary present, but now it's just in time for Christmas!
I was a little bit anxious to get some pics out of this beauty so bear with the 8:30pm-lamp-on-the-dresser light. The weather here has been pretty craptastic this week and I haven't had decent sunlight. Perhaps with the next sunny day I'll do some outdoors shots!
This shawl was made out of yarn I bought on sale from the now closed Handknits in Englewood. On futher reserach it has since been discontinued. It's a luxurous cashmere/silk blend called Richesse Et Soie. from Knit One Crochet Two. I used about 4 balls using size 5 addis Turbos.
I also was anxious with the blocking as I didn't have near enough blocking pins. (and when I saw near enough I kinda mean none). So I fiddled with it and stretched it with my fingers and it turned out fine by me. Points kinda bother me and if my mom wants more of a point I have no problems reblocking to her desire, but something tells me she's gonna love it just the way it is. Christmas Gift #1 down.
Numba Three... Ms. Clark I cannot get enough.
