Fruits of Labor

A while back I wrote about our trip to the Northwoods of Wisconsin and my visit to a fabulous little yarn shop.  Well, I have been working hard the past several days and have a few new pieces to share with all of you.

Here is my two-year old sporting the first finished product:  a little bitty shawl for those chilly mornings in the spring and summer when you just need a little something to snuggle up with.  I am sad to say that I have no idea how to read a pattern, so everything I make I create without a pattern.  But I did get my inspiration from this blog post.  The shawl is made with a beautiful lamb’s wool/bamboo blend, so you get the warmth of the wool without the scratchiness that sometimes accompanies woolen garments.

Next, I made a little something for Mama!  A nice cowl made with toasty 100% lamb’s wool.

More projects are in the works, especially after purchasing that wonderful yarn on our farm visit.  I will be sure to share soon.

I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing, and crafty weekend 🙂

    Beautiful work…and how speedy too! I, like you, cannot read a pattern, I can only make something if someone shows me how! I crochet but only know how to make prayer shawls (because we made them at church) and afhgans.

  2. That shawl looks so cozy on your daughter. Nice work!
