My Mother the Great!

I'm sorry for this belated Mother's Day post, but we have had some wicked thunder and lightning storms blowing through here each night, so I haven't been able to write a decent post. When I returned from Florida I found the dollowing pictures in my inbox, the first proving once again what an amazing knitter my Mom is:



This is the Pacific Northwest shawl from the pattern Mom bought from Elann. It called for lace weight yarn... but since most yarn in that category is wool and Mom is allergic to wool, she knit it from a light worsted weight acrylic - TLC brand, I believe. Isn't it gorgeous?!

And Mom, do you realize you inadvertantly supplied me with Project Spectrum photos? I've been strangely lacking in green photos this month, which is really odd because green is my favourite colour.

The second picture is of my Mom's fledgling clematis - she said it was merely a stick last year, so she is really proud of how it is growing:



Happy Mother's Day, Mom! I love you!

Wow! That is gorgeous! And if she made it out of the same stuff I made the pinwheel baby blanket out of (my G for the ABC-along) then I know how wonderfully soft that is too. It's beautiful!

What a beautiful design -- I just had to stare at it for awhile. :-)

You rock, mom! What a lovely shawl!

Nancy said...

The design and the color are beautiful! Don't you wish sometimes that you could just mount the shawl on the wall like other works of art?

Oh, if only my clematis would do SOMETHING! Green foilage and that's it for three years now.

The shawl is wonderful. She did an awesome job.
