A long-awaited photo shoot

You know when you’ve knitted something for someone far away but you can’t send it off until you get good photos, because you don’t know if the recipient will ever take any? Well, finally today the stars aligned and the Wee Girl took these for me:

   

     

This is the Little House Shawl, knitted up in Madeleine Tosh DK in Manor. This was a really enjoyable little project! It starts with 396 stitches, so it gets smaller and smaller, and I felt like it went really quickly.   

It’s for my sister, who is the biggest (grown up) fan of Little House on the Prairie.  I imagine her donning it to watch the show…  Although it turned out so pretty, it’s hard to part with.

In other news, I tackled the Wee Boy’s quilt today and made great progress.

   

 

I’ve done some work on the back as well, but not enough to show you. 

Phew, that was a super crafty day! Good night!
