Catching Up!!

Well, we had a great class!!!!  It was small, but we had a load of fun!!  I told these ladies that I wanted them to take 2 words from this class..... I Can!!!  Before the 2 hours were over they both said exactly that.... I Can do this!!!!  I was sooooo proud of them!!!  And even though they had doubts that the pattern was actually simple, they finally decided that I was right!!!   I can't wait to see what they finish up with!!!!

I also added the pattern for this scarf to the class as an extra!!  It's basically the same pattern as the shawl and it will give them something different to play with!!  It's a great little scarf made out of Artyarns Mohair, Silk and Glitter.  I wish my picture was good enough to show the tiny little glitter in this yarn!!  It's sooooo pretty!!!  And I couldn't believe how soft this yarn is!!!  It's drapey and really soft!!  
This is the other thing that I've been working on.  It's a prayer shawl for a lady that has lost her Mom.  I hope that it brings her some comfort in the days to come.  Right now the loss is fresh and there's things that are keeping her running and keep her from thinking about missing her Mom, this is for later when the time comes that there's nothing to keep her spirits up.  The times when everyone has gone home and all the arrangements have been made and there's nothing but her and her thoughts.  That's when loss gets really real and hard to deal with.  I know, I still have days when I want to pick up the phone and call my Mom.
I've got to get back to the real world now and get to knitting!!!!!!!!!!!!
