It was Emily rose's 21st over the weekend and as she is a dear friend of the family ( and my little sisters best friend) i wanted to make her something very special.
I used some beautiful hand dyed yarn i received a few weeks ago in a shawl swap to make a "Damson" for her. She adored it and wore it for the rest of the day as it suited her dress perfectly!
I had given myself 4 days o knit it up which turned out to be not quite enough time! i was knitting in the car on the way down to wellington, then knitting first thing on Saturday morning to finish it, then had my mum blow drying it after pinning it out to block, up until the minute we had to leave for the party! haha next time i will give myself more time!
This was shawl number 5 for the year! so i am halfway through my 10 Shawls in 2010 goal and it is only the start of may! have only done 1 and a half pairs of socks though so need to get onto those!
I have noticed my followers list climbing over the past few weeks too which is so exciting! once i hit 100 followers i will have another giveaway so tell your friends ;)
