This is it!!! This is the Imbolc Shawl from GoddessKnits


I can't say enough about Renee's patterns. They are not only beautiful, they're easy to follow and a good size!! I can't thank her enough for giving me permission to use this pattern for my raffle!! Remember, you've got until May 20 to enter and by May 21st we'll know where this beauty (I know, don't break your arm patting yourself on the back!! LOL!!) will be going!!

Child of the 60's!!

You are a Hippie

You are a total hippie. While you may not wear birks or smell of incense, you have the soul of a hippie.

You don't trust authority, and you do as you please. You're willing to take a stand, even when what you believe isn't popular.

You like to experiment with ideas, lifestyles, and different subcultures.

You always gravitate toward what's radical and subversive. Normal, mainstream culture doesn't really resonate with you.

There's worse thing to be!!! Growing up in the 60's had it's real moments!!

I'm having a Raffle. As you know I'm big into Ravelry. We have a group there called RAK (Random Acts of Kindness). This group was started by a 17 year old named Joy (madametj on Ravelry). This wonderful young lady is trying to raise money to go on a mission trip to Chile this summer. I'm trying to help out by offering a knitted lace shawl. For every $1.00 put in Joy's pay-pal account between now and May 20th you'll get one chance to get this shawl for yourself!!!!
1. email me at for the paypal address for Joy
2. Joy will let me know when it's posted and I'll put one entry in for every dollar you send.
3. One May 21st I'll have my DD draw out a winner for the shawl!!

This shawl is going to Jagger Maine Line wool yarn in a beautiful Capri Green color. I'm using a pattern that Goddess Knits has been kind enough to let me use for this called Imbolc. This was her Mystery Shawl #7 and was named after one of the four principal festivals of the Irish calendar. It is truly a beautiful shawl.
I will post pictures soon and hope you will help me to help this great person!!
