Faith wearing the Felted Slippers that Marianne sent in a Care Package several weeks ago. They’re huge on Faith but she loves them, and manages to wear them on the slick hardwood floors in her apartment.
And here’s the Swallowtail Shawl which Marianne knit for me, from Alpaca. Spoiled rotten, I am. 🙂
Before heading off to church last Sunday.
The day turned very cold (drizzling a soggy snow) and by the time I’d arrived home from a long afternoon meeting the shawl had became a neck warmer.
At first I was hesitant to wear the shawl – it is so beautiful and I can only imagine all the hours that went into knitting it. But well I know the frustration of making a garment for someone only to realize that it’s never worn. This shawl will be worn with love and pride, and perhaps it will eventually end up like the velveteen rabbit.
Thank you, sweet Marianne!
