I is for Independence

I need to catch up on my ABCs and my blog, don't I? (somehow I think I lost a post too...) Independence seems fitting for the letter I this time of year. It also is perfect for descriping what my now 14 year old niece is striving for:


(the picture shows 'growing-up-too-fast' niece with the blond hair & her cake. We also celebrated Z's birthday - she is in the background with candles still lit).


This family trip also allowed me to gift my sister her birthday shawl. (Fiber Trends Stars & Stripes. Knit with Wool in the Woods yarn: ballet in the color military blue.)

A quick closeup before I left. I didn't realize that the settings are off on my camera though & therefore it's blurry. Blocking this made me realize some things: I love lace & I want these.

Beautiful shawl. I always swore I would never knit lace but the idea of watching it bloom during the blocking process is very appealing. Not yet though, I've been bitten by the sock bug.
