Early birthday present

My friend, Leah, sent me an early birthday present.  We don’t normally exchange gifts, however, I sent her a pair of socks for her birthday in July.  She’s a crocheter, sewist, wife, mother, (just a few of her talents) and dabbles in other crafty things and surprises.

The Rainbow Sister Shawl, also known as Regenbogenschwester, is so gorgeous!

The color of Drops Fabel yarn is called sand (#651) and is comprised of greys, browns, and caramels.

It will be perfect to throw over my shoulders when I need just a bit of warmth.

Or worn in the front like a scarf to keep my neck warm under a coat or jacket.

I love it!  Thank you, my friend!!

Ruana update

My sister-in-law finally received the ruana I was making for her.

No pics of her modeling it but here is the finished neckline area.

And the tag with all the essentials. most importantly the 65,644 stitches!

The finished size is 48 inches wide by 60 inches long.  I had a dream that it was so big that it dragged on the floor but in reality, it reaches mid-thigh.

I’ll see if she can send me a photo of her wearing it.

Now, back to some sock knitting!
