My mom and sister-in-law Cheri just left this morning. We had a great visit with them, and I think it was really good for my mom to have a mini-holiday. I really appreciated the fact that not only was Cheri willing to drive my mom 600 kilometers to see us, she also had to fly from her home in Chicago in order to do so. I gifted her with these autumn-themed dish cloths by KrisKnits. I don't especially enjoy knitting with cotton, but these patterns were so cute I decided to make an exception.
Here's another recently finished project. I knit this for my dear friend Barb, who is celebrating a birthday tomorrow. Unfortunately I had to mail Barb's present to her, so don't have a picture of her wearing it. You will have to settle for my in-house model Alexandra.
This is my second Boneyard Shawl, and I have to say it was as much fun knitting this one as the first. Now I am caught up with posting recently completed knitting projects. I just wish I could say the same about the other areas of my life. It is always fun having guests, but once they leave and real life takes over again it is always shocking to discover how far behind I am.
