While They Were Waiting

One of the ladies helped Karen spin and knit a gorgeous shawl and scarf.






This shawl is going to be auctioned off as a fund raiser for a cancer organization.  I'll post a link when it's available.





There are beads on both pieces.  You can see them pretty well in the shawl, but they are there on the scarf as well.  Never discount the wool from "commercial" sheep.  So pretty.

I'm bummed that blogger seems to be having trouble posting pictures these last couple of days.  I think if you click to "biggify" the pictures  should clear up.  Sigh.

Update - looks like it's back to normal, so I re-loaded all the pictures.  Much better :-).

And here's a link to the auction.  http://www.burrenstainedglassart.com/Lace-Shawl.html

Not a chance that's me. Karen is a genius. That's her, showing the shawl with the sheep in the background. I'm behind the camera ;-).

I love both of them!! Once the gift knitting is over I'm starting a shawl, lacy of course :)

Wow! Both are beautiful projects - what a lot of work they must have been.

Both are beautiful pieces and should raise some fine funds for your charity. Gorgeous!

Beautiful...I am now wondering how the beads are added...are they strung on the yarn and then knit...that is what makes sense to me! Both pieces are stunning! :)
