Helping A Friend

Don't you feel good when you can help a friend or family member out with something? I know I do, especially if it's with something I love. Last week I received an email from an online friend asking if I would be willing to knit a shawl for her to give as birthday gift. I was so completely honored that she asked me! You can ask my sis, I was on the phone with her when I read the email.

I received the yarn yesterday and all I can say is "Oh My Goodness!". It's the Indie II - 45% Cashmere 55% Silk by Little Knits. Yum!!!! I had never knit with this yarn, but I had a good feeling it was going to be a nice experience.

After I finished fondling the delicious yarn, I set to work. Here's my progress so far. I completed Rows 1-42 of Chart 1 on the Icarus Shawl last night.


  1. I go away for a couple of weeks and you post FOUR times?!!! Be still my heart. That yarn sounds delish, she's one lucky friend.

  2. Yummy! Yarn pron at its juiciest!
