Shawl For Sherri

One of my closest friends now lives in a city 4 or five hours from here. Her birthday is coming up soon, and the Manos Del Uruguay I received in exchange for some sample knitting (from Yarn Garden in Charlotte) was a great color for her (Bing Cherry, all russet with faint overtones of ochre and raspberry). So I knit another one-skein shawl. (Except I wanted it to wrap all the way around her like a hug, so I used two skeins) Here it is, unblocked.

I agree! I have one of her beautiful shawls on my chair behind me. I wrap up in it when I need a hug or just warmed up. All lovely blues, purples and greens.

I love the wee hats too. I found a pattern for beanie caps in a book I got yesterday. If I get one done I'll post it.
