Quick Friday post

It seems that I'm on a roll with blocking shawls these days . I finally got around to blocking my Ravelympics project , the blue Spinner's Lace shawl . It only waited in the knitting basket for almost 3 months . Bad, bad , bad !

Yesterday I received a package from Valerie of Wandering Cat Yarns . This was a thank you for helping her niece in fundraising for the Heart & Stroke Foundation . It was so very nice of her and so much appreciated . She emailed me and asked me to choose a yarn from her etsy store . This superwash merino arrived yesterday afternoon . How gorgeous is that ! Thank you very much Valerie !!!
Hoping everyone has a wonderful weekend !

How could you stand NOT seeing how your beautiful shawl turned out, and just let it sit there in the basket?
I was lucky too, and got some lovely yarn as well. Those Wandering Cat Yarns girls are really nice! :o)

Gorgeous shawl! Probably you were just waiting until it was more like shawl wearing weather, that's all.

Looking forward to seeing what you decide to knit with your Wandering Cat Yarn!

Your shawl is absolutely gorgeous! You must be really pleased with it, especially after 3 months. It's almost like finishing it all over again!
