Cherry Leaf Shawl to Auction


Ah! It’s done, it’s beautiful, if I may say so, and it’s headed off to auction.

Could not have finished this without the generous support of Ravelry friends in GB and CT who sourced the last two skeins of yarn. This took four skeins of Jitterbug. It’s mostly the Cherry Leaf Shawl from Victorian Lace Today, knit up with maybe 6 more repeats of leaves, with a completely different border, which I edited down from another of her borders in the book.

So, it’s going to raise funds for a friend’s bone marrow transplant. What should I ask for an opening bid… Want to come to the super cool party? It’ll be great poetry and fiction readings and wonderful music and a good auction… This coming Sunday. Details here….

Hello out there!

Your blog hasn’t popped up in my Google Reader for a while, so I thought I’d pop over here to see if I’d missed anything. Looks like you’ve been quiet for a good two months now. Hope all is well…

Hey Marsha, Wow. You’re right. That’s terrible. Yes, a little health snafu, but I’m bouncing back. Been knitting a lot. Just a little behind. Okay, it’s time to charge up the camera and get back to it.

[…] liked the Cherry Leaf shawl I had made in a fingering-weight yarn, but that same pattern wouldn’t have translated to this […]
