It started innocently. Less than five years ago I said to my daughter, Amy, "you know, someday you'll be sorry you never learned how to knit from your mother!"
So she agreed, purchased some cheap yarn and needles and started a scarf. The only time she would knit was when she was having her hair colored at the hairdressers (yikes!). This went on for about two years or so.
All of a sudden, the knitting bug really hit her. Whenever I visit we spend a lot of time knitting and I try to teach her a new knitting technique. That, along with her LYS, YouTube, etc., she has become an accomplished knitter.
Today she sent me this picture of a shawl she was blocking. Isn't it beautiful! I'm quite pleased that she is carrying on the skills that were handed down to me by my beloved Aunt Rita.
The pattern is Pikenaze by Louisa Harding.
Her cat is still living even after she caught it sleeping on top of the shawl as it was drying.
A back view for you!
And today is my daughter's 20th wedding anniversary! Happy Anniversary to her and her husband! They make a great couple!
