I finished the pink booties (for the baby girl a friend of the family just had). They turned out very cute. Now I just need to get them in the mail!
I'm almost finished with my Big Project that is a secret for now. Let's just say it's a little something for a certain person who shares some DNA with me and the lovely person who's agreed to marry him. In a month. That should narrow it down. Also, it's very large and wooly.
My next project is a shawl for a college friend who recently lost her husband. They were still newlyweds, only married a year. So tragic and sudden, my heart just breaks for her. I just ordered the yarn and I decided on the Boneyard Shawl pattern by Stephen West. Not trying to be macabre with the title, it was just a simple, comforting pattern that will work with the yarn I ordered. I'm eager to get started on it, even though it probably won't be much use to her until the weather cools down. I like the idea of a prayer shawl, even though I'm not religious. Non-religious prayer, perhaps? Healing thoughts for the recipient knitted in. Think some healing thoughts for her if you get a chance.
