Thank you all for the wonderful outpouring of support for the Wrapped in Care program.Â I received a number of stories that validate the project and a number of people who have jumped on board to knit a shawl and/or get the word out to knitting groups, church knitting ministries, etc.Â Thanks!Â I createdÂ a Ravelry Group called Wrapped in Care — I would love it if those of you who are working on shawls would join!Â You’re all issued a formal invitation to join the group!
This weekend, instead of spending two full days at a soccer tournament ( – er, Bad, BadÂ Mommy! – ), I will be sewing.Â I am making the dress that goes with my Mystic Waters Shawl (which isn’t making much progress) — here’s the pattern:
Check out the cute pants that go under the dress!Â I thought that was a great idea — more coverage without looking frumpy, so I bought the dark blue to go with.Â It says “fast & easy” so I hope there is truth in advertising!Â My real sewing days are over.Â I used to do close-to-couture sewing and made all of my clothes.Â Now, fast and easy rules!
I’ve stationed myself downstairs in view of the DVD player and will sew to Pride and Prejudice or something along those lines.Â I know every word by heart, so it can play in the background.
What are the rest of you working on?Â My knitting is in such a doldrum lately that I would love to be inspired by others!!
