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.
That shawl looks so cozy on your daughter. Nice work!
Thank you! She has really been enjoying it 🙂
