Til Death Do They Part

A lovely woman I know is now married, as of about 6:30 last night.

It was for her that I spun that gorgeous merino/tencel of Mama E's.

It was for her that I carefully plied it

and washed it

and wound it (with some assistance)

and made this beautiful yarn.

It was for her that I knit this shawl, thinking of all that goes into a marriage, and all that she faces before her.

With a unique variation on a stole shape, a straightforward but elegant lace pattern and a reversible cable edging, this shawl is simple without being ordinary. A simple reversible cable border gives a little weight to the edges, and the pointed stole shape is wearable and flattering to all figures.

The pattern itself is written to be easily adapted to any size, any quantity or weight of yarn, and can even be made into a scarf if you so desire!

For just $6, you can download the 6-page PDF of Suzanne's Wedding Shawl, which includes written as well as charted instructions, with photo extras including tips on making and attaching tassels and a clear photo tutorial on cabling without a cable needle!

That turned out just amazing! (amazingly? Oh jeez, I don't know.) Anyway, I'm sure she loves it and will treasure it for a long, long time.

Although I need another shawl/stole pattern like a huge hole in my head I wanted to stop by and tell you how absolutely exquisite it is. Perfectly lovely and what a fabulous gift.
