Paris Anyone???




Hedora is feeling very "lavish" modeling my first finished Fair Isle project.
This was also a first time using a "chart", which up until now I've had a mental block about. It wasn't as bad as I'd thought it would be. Now, add several more yarns in there & I'd go ballistic!!! But, just the two strands wasn't bad at all.






I like the way the inside turned out too! It could almost be reversible......
Look what my daughter rewarded me with the other day. It's a rubber stamp with my name that she had made!!!
I'm just so tickled with it that I'm stamping all my knitting/spinning books.
Incredibly thoughtful gift Shirley!!!
Thank you
