So, I decided that not only would I honor the Sabbath by doing quiet handwork, but I would also only work on gifts for others or charity projects.
I am not sure if this project is considered "stitching" on a quilting blog but I do love to knit and this is a VERY special project for me!!
Well, one day, she asked if I would make her a sweater from the yarn she still had left - oh what an honor for me. There was not enough yarn to make a sweater that would fit her, so I decided to make her this beautiful lace scarf. I am almost done with it and I have been working day and night on it because Leonora's daughter said she is not doing too well and I want to make sure she gets it before she goes to meet Jesus.
I added the second yarn, a merino wool and silk blend to make the scarf a bit richer and more full bodied. I think Leonora must have started her sweater back in the 1960's and the Columbia Minerva Mohair Blend is no longer available. It is now considered vintage - kinda like Leonora!!
I'll be linking up with Kathy's Quilts and Slow Stitchin' Sunday - come on over and see what everyone is working on!!
