I think everybody loves getting a little something in the mail every once in a while. When I was a little girl I lived in Maine and my grandparents lived in NY. My grandmother would send me cards and letters and an occasional package which started my fascination with sending and receiving mail! A couple of weeks ago my friend Yvonne sent me a tracking number and said to be on the lookout for a package. I couldn't imagine what she had sent me and then the day came when the package arrived. I was so surprised and very honored that she knitted me a shawl! She used my Tyrion's Gift pattern and added beads to it. The yarn is Madelinetosh lace and the colorway is Lapis or Tardi's Blue as I call it. Every time I've worn it, I've gotten a million compliments! I'm still overwhelmed by her generosity!
Here is a close up that shows the beading:
Speaking of mail, I'm really excited to be able to reveal that Wentletrap was the May 2015 Poststitch Sockstitch club pattern! If you haven't checked out Poststitch, they have a subscription program and you can subscribe month by month which I love. Be sure to check out their blog too, they have some great knitting tips on there.
